Every penny, every item and every minute counts when it comes to Fight for Life. Raising money is starting to blossom throughout the upcoming months of February and March. Student Council, FFA, Key Club, and many other organizations are working together to raise more money than ever before! Last year they raised an astonishing $42,000, and this year they hope to raise ever more. Key Club is aiding their cause by hosting a Garage Sale and Bake Sale on Saturday, February 25 from 9:00-1:00 PM in the EHS cafeteria.

Spring is just around the corner, so start spring cleaning now! Just stop by Mrs. Whisker’s room and drop off the items you want to donate. Your donation will help to support the children of St. Jude and help to raise awareness for the organization. But that’s not all! Do not forget to show up for the day of, to find some treasures of you own. In fact, you never know what you may find.

Mrs. Whisker, Key Club advisor, commented on this fundraiser. “This was something that we have never done before, however we are excited to see how much money we raise. We thought it would be a great idea to help Student Council.”

They hope to see many individuals donating to the cause. From clothes, furniture, shoes, household items and lots more, the Fight for Life garage sale would like to give back to the children that are impacted by life threatening illnesses. Not only are they selling items, but they are also selling fresh baked goods. The president of Key Club, McKenzie Walz said, “Fight for Life has always been a huge priority to our school and this is Key Club’s way of contributing to the cause.” To join the fight to find a cure for childhood cancer, come support EHS at the garage/bake sale!
