DIXON – The Reagan Middle School Builder’s Club helped three charitable organizations in October.

Students brought donations for the Dixon Food Pantry as part of their entry fee to the RMS Halloween dance. The club collected eight boxes of food.

Members also made and sold more than 350 ghost pops during lunch hours to support the United Way. They raised $181.

The group went trick-or-treating to raise money for The Eliminate Project, an effort by Kiwanis International and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. The club collected $158.
