This week, a fundraiser will be held by Interact Club, Key Club, and senior class office in order to help the communities that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Irma.
These clubs will be selling handmade bracelets made out of purple, blue, and white thread and will be selling for $2 during lunches, in the mornings, and afternoons.
Even after previous fundraiser ideas were not approved, the clubs kept persevering.
“Unfortunately, we were unable to sell pizza because the fundraiser was not approved,” Key Club Co-president Shayna Hussain said. “[However,] we hope to raise a lot of money from [this].”
The money earned by the fundraiser will be donated to the Salvation Army, to then be put into relief efforts for both Texas and Florida.
All of the club members came up with the idea, in hopes that the school would come together.
“I believe that they [the school] will help if they try to imagine what it is like,” sponsor for Interact Club Sarah Shangraw said. “I hope people will pull out their dollars.”
GEMS Club and Random Acts of Kindness Club are also planning to help.
“We all, as a country, have to pull together,” Mrs. Shangraw said. “Our area doesn’t really see natural disasters, so we must provide support for the people who do.”
