The major fundraising campaign for Hutchinson Middle School – 7 and Hutchinson Middle School – 8 looks significantly different in 2021.

For the past several years prior to 2020 when fundraisers were suspended by COVID-19, students fanned out over the community selling discount cards that offered holders discounts or BOGO opportunities at local businesses.

In 2021, all students at the two schools have a code that family and friends can enter into a website to simply donate. Each student has a personalized donation page.

For safety, students are prohibited from going door-to-door to make donation requests this year. Donors can pay online or give check donations (made out to “HMS”).

Students who earn at least $25 in donations will earn prizes. Prizes are accumulative so the more a student raises, the more the youth receives in prizes.

The fundraiser ends April 19. If you know an HMS student, go to and enter the student’s code number.

Goal of the fundraiser is $25,000. Money will be used for teacher grants, student rewards and year-end events at both middle schools.
