Purple Pinkies to invade CES Tuesday

-A A +A

Children help eradicate polio worldwide

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Purple Pinkies will invade Chiefland Elementary School on Tuesday when the Chiefland Rotary, with the help of the school's 854-plus students, partner on eradicating polio worldwide.

Students are being encouraged to bring $1 — the approximate cost to immunize a child against crippling polio — to school on Tuesday. For those who cannot bring in a dollar, they are being asked to bring in canned food which the Rotarians will exchange for cash.

CES Principal Angela Hastings Thomas said today the students will start learning about the project and watch videos about the Rotary's drive to eradicate polio and the way students can help other children through the Purple Pinky fundraiser. 

The Rotarians, who have been practicing on each other for this event, will paint donors' pinkies purple with gentian violet.
