Team Tongie is an organization established in the Tonganoxie School District to raise money that goes toward helping people with incidental expenses that may arise from medical emergencies, such as gas money, airplane tickets, discretionary spending money and the like. It’s a way for students and the community in general to come together in times of crises.
At Team Tongie’s first event, a cake auction held at a student assembly, more than $1,000 was raised by bidding on just 12 cakes.
Hair stylists at Hair and Co. in Tonganoxie held a drive in which they cut hair on a recent Saturday and donated to Team Tongie from money raised through the haircuts.
