Members of the Landrum Middle School “School House Rock Club” met with representatives from the J.T. Townsend Foundation Sept. 30 to present them with a $1,500 donation raised by hosting a school dance and a talent show last spring.
Club Co-Presidents Phoebe Collins and Kendall Welling, and Vice President Josie Frein, presented the check to Board Chair Judith Zitiello and JT’s mother, Carmen Townsend, who serves as director of the foundation’s giving team.
Accompanied by Principal Ryan Player and club sponsor Laurie Stanton, the students met with the foundation to discuss the importance of philanthropy, the future of the foundation and the club’s goals for the new school year. The students are looking forward to increasing awareness for the JT Townsend Foundation, as well as continuing to help Landrum students support the cause through the club’s 3rd annual talent show to be held next spring.
