Makayla Philbrook recently presented a check for $760 to Sue Drinkwater, manager of the oncology department at Waldo County General Hospital. The funds were raised by students in RSU 20, who each paid $1 to be allowed to wear a funny hat in school.

The fundraiser was organized by school nurse Chris Harrington, in honor of guidance counselor Cindy Martell, who has been battling breast cancer. On hand to present the check were Trevor Martell, Andrew Akles, Rowan Walsh, Makayla Philbrook, Melody Canary, Katie King, Brittany Steele and Rainey Knowlton.

The donation will be used to purchase resource materials for children who have cancer, or have family or friends who do.
