Idaho Students Donate To Fight Meth During Idaho Gives Day

On Idaho Gives Day, students across Idaho raised more than $1,000 for the Idaho Meth Project – all through solving complex math problems!

Through Idaho’s Math Initiative, which started in 2008, students in Idaho’s public schools use Think Through Math, an award-winning software system to supplement their in-class math instruction. With Think Through Math, students can turn points they earn for studying math into donations to charities. For every 5,000 points a student earns, they can donate one dollar to a charity of their choice.

On Thursday, May 1, during the annual Idaho Gives online giving event, students participating in Think Through Math donated $1,222 to the Idaho Meth Project, which works to combat drug abuse.

While students across Idaho contributed, five classes donated more than any others.
  • The Watkins Homeroom 2 class, Twin Lakes Elementary School, Lakeland Joint School District
  • The Miss Clark 2013 class, Syringa Elementary School, Pocatello/Chubbuck School District
  • The A. Eiden Montessori class, Liberty Elementary School, Boise School District
  • The Bellomy 6B class, White Pine Elementary School, Boise School District
  • The Elsberry class, Eagle Hills Elementary School, Meridian School District
Congratulations to all of these students, and thank you for your generosity!
