High Schoolers Raised More Money Than Expected to Help Students in Haiti

This morning, students and representatives at the Anderson County High School presented a check worth much more than they expected to help feed fellow students in Haiti.  The ACHS club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, heard of the charitable event, Harvest for Haiti, and decided to see what they could do to help.  Harvest for Haiti is an annual meal packing event hosted by Fox Creek Christian Church in which over 150,000 meals are packed and sent to students in need at a Haitian school. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes wanted to help raise funds to pay for some of these meals and set a goal of $200.  However, other students and teachers got involved and the project spread across the high school, and they were able to raise an outstanding $1110 which will help pay for 5550 meals.  They then presented the check today to representatives of Harvest for Haiti which were incredibly grateful for the donation.
