During a recent hurricane relief fundraiser, fourth- and fifth-grade students on the Wenonah Elementary School Lighthouse Team incorporated mathematics into their community service project.

The Lighthouse Team is composed of fourth- and fifth-grade student leaders who organize fundraising initiatives to benefit people in need across the country. As part of the hurricane relief fundraiser aimed to benefit the victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the students incorporated mathematics into the service project as they used addition to arrive at a total amount of food donated in pounds before it was picked up for donation.  

In total, the students raised 958.1 pounds of food, which was donated to nonprofit organization Island Harvest.
