Grant career students raise funds for holiday needs

In response to the great need felt by families during the winter holiday season, Grant Career Center’s Student Advisory Council led the charge to raise money to provide meals and necessities during the holidays for families at the Career Center.

The students volunteered to coordinate the school’s efforts to raise money as well as to shop for groceries and gifts, sort food drive contributions and wrap and distribute all the items to the Grant Career Center families in need.

SkillsUSA members set goals for the students and staff and watched as the money began flowing in. Each career and technical program pledged to raise money and to help achieve the goal. The methods were as varied as the programs themselves.
