Springboro Schools and the Springboro Community recently completed a district-wide fundraiser, which raised $45,071.70 for Trotwood-Madison City Schools, in order to contribute to the continued tornado relief efforts.
Each of the six (6) school buildings in Springboro Schools conducted their own type of fundraiser, which took place on various days throughout the months of August and September 2019. The specifics of these fundraisers are outlined below under the "How Can I Help?" section.
All monetary donations from each of the six (6) buildings, as well as various community donations by local organizations, have been put toward the Trotwood-Madison City Schools fundraiser.

Why We Are Doing This?
More than two hundred (200) students, who attend Trotwood-Madison City Schools, were displaced from their homes, as a result of the tornadoes that struck the city of Trotwood, OH on May 27, 2019.
Where Does Money Donated Go?
Any funds raised have gone towards school uniforms for the more than two hundred (200) Trotwood-Madison City Schools' students who were displaced from their homes. The goal was for each student to have three (3) school uniforms for this current school year. Any additional funds over the goal have gone towards additional uniforms for those Trotwood-Madison City Schools' students most in need.
