Students from Seaford raised funds against cancer

Seaford MS builders club stands against cancer raising funds for the Allen Cancer Center at Nanticoke


The Seaford Middle School Builders Club, sponsored by the Seaford Kiwanis, which includes over 50 students in six, seven and eight grade work on projects throughout the year that focus on helping the community. With October being cancer awareness month, the students in an effort to take a stand against cancer designed and sold pink t-shirts that the entire school wore on Tuesday, October 30. The students sold 156 t-shirts and collected $1000 to benefit the Allen Cancer Center at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in memory of Tara Backus. Mrs. Backus was a math teacher that taught at the Seaford Middle School and Central Elementary who had just recently lost the battle against cancer, but her memory will live on.

Builders Club is an international student-led organization sponsored by the Kiwanis International and is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 45,000 members worldwide.
