Rogers Elementary Raises Hundreds for Meals On Wheels

Dec 03, 2015

Frisco ISD's Rogers Elementary School continued its annual Turkey Legs fundraiser for Meals on Wheels this year, raising $1,502.30 to help the area’s senior citizens, according to Rogers Principal Susie Nesmith.

This was the eighth year that students and teachers donated change to vote for their favorite "turkey" during the week before Thanksgiving Break.

Three "turkeys," or more accurately, teachers, are secretly selected each year by the assistant principal. The big reveal as to who they really are comes at the end of the program during the “Turkey Legs” performance by Rogers staff.

This year Lissa Smith, CEO of Collin County Meals on Wheels, attended the event and accepted the check from the school.
