Hometown Hero: The Merry Mustang Carnival

In 2015, the student council at Medlin Middle School in Northwest ISD decided to put on a fundraising winter carnival.

The festival is planned by kids, run by kids and is benefiting kids. There ae bounce houses, laser tag, multiple food vendors, games to play and more.

In two years, the Merry Mustang Carnival has donated $10,000 to Summer Santa. The group helps kids in need in Tarrant County all year long, not just at Christmas.

The Medlin Mustangs are proud of their fundraiser which helps kids with school supplies, clothes, toys and basic things so many of us take for granted.

The 2017 Merry Mustang Carnival takes place Friday, December 8 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Medlin Middle School in Trophy Club in Northwest ISD. All proceeds will benefit Summer Santa.
