Let's Help Macey!


Wadena-Deer Creek sixth-grader Macey Goeden suffered a freak accident at a basketball game on Feb. 3 that lacerated the cornea of her eye. She's already undergone two surgeries at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis in attempt to repair the damage. The first surgery she received 12 stitches across her eye. Macey has a long recovery ahead of her with the likelihood of more surgeries. Macey's family, Kevin and Gail Goeden of Wadena, are hopeful that she will eventually regain her eyesight in that eye.

Anyone who is familiar with Macey, knows what a sweet, kind and thoughtful girl she is. Her mom, Gail, said Macey has been a trooper through all of this. Wadena-Deer Creek Schools would like to help Macey and the Goeden family as medical and travel expenses are beginning to accrue.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Make a Donation! Make check payable to: The Macey Goeden Sunshine Fund c/o Wadena-Deer Creek Middle/High School 600 Colfax Ave SW Wadena MN 56482 ~~~Mail or drop off your donation at the middle/high school office.~~~
  • WDC Student Council is selling Wolverine Pride LED bracelets for $5 each. Half of the proceeds to be donated to the Macey Goeden Sunshine Fund.

Thank you for your support!


PLEASE SAVE AND COLLECT FOR WDC! The school collects Box Tops, Pizza Ranch wagons, Loaves 4 Learning and Pop Tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. Turn in these items at the elementary or middle/high school offices. Thank you!
