Fundraising at WHS provides opportunities for many clubs
Whether it is in kindergarten or in their senior year most, if not all, students are fundraising.
Soon the class of 2018 will be selling carnations to help pay for post-Prom and help make the Prom experience that much better for the seniors and juniors.
According to a PTO Today article entitled, “Sales Fundraisers: The Basics,” every year school groups in the United States raise over $1.5 billion, which equates to around $13,000 per school.
Looking at a Speech and Debate “Dine to Donate” event at Chipotle Mexican Grill, Coach William Frank commented that the team made $403 through this event, helping the team do more in the way of competition, supplies and financial help for lower income families.
The purpose of donating may already be clear, but where to donate may not be, the best advice for finding a way to donate is just as easy as looking around every day to see posters in the hallway or even go to a restaurant that maintains a community board. Look forward one year, there will be a citrus sale for the band, a poinsettia sale for National Honor Society and many, “Dine to Donate” events for multiple different clubs, teams and events.
Looking forward, on Feb. 8 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., there will be a “Dine to Donate” at Five Guys burgers and Fries for the WHS track and field team.
