The CCHS Student Government and Student Senate are about halfway through a joint project raising money for victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. We have a connection with the Puerto Rican Secretary of Education, so we will be donating to the Instituto Nueva Escuela, an organization that supports Puerto Rican schools. The fundraiser is a “Penny Wars” competition, with students donating change to an overall class collection.
Our goal is to raise a total of $5,000 by October 18. While we have made progress towards this goal, we can use all the contributions we can get. As such, we’re looking for parents who can match some of the donations. There’s no specific amount that we’re looking to have matched; whatever you can give would be deeply appreciated.
If you’re interested in participating in this program, please contact me, Emma Garrison, Senior Class President, at egarrison18@concordcarlisle.
