Troy Athens Charity Week 2013: Students Set $28,000 Goal
Funds will benefit the nonprofit organization Angels of Hope.
Troy Athens High School students will work to benefit the nonprofit organization Angels of Hope during the annual Charity Week which kicks off Monday.
Student Congress, parents and staff will hold fundraisers all week to benefit the local branch of the nonprofit, which provides financial assistance to children and those who love and care for them as they battle cancer.
The Athens community, which smashed its fundraising goal of $24,000 at last year's Charity Week event, aims to raise $28,000 this year.
Among the ways the Athens community will raise money this week:
- Student Congress is promoting Spirit Days, however, students will not be counted.
- Do you have a jumbo change jar at home? Now is the time to get rid of those pennies! Money drop-off containers will be stationed in the cafeteria during lunch. Money will be counted throughout the week.
- On Monday, a fundraiser will be held at Salsarita's (6892 N. Rochester Rd., Troy) from 4-8 p.m. Flyers are not required — just show up and eat!
- On Tuesday, a fundraiser will be held at The Gathering Place (3985 John R Rd., Troy) from 7-9 p.m. Again, flyers are not required.
- Students will buy tickets in the evening at the door to attend a volleyball tournament from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday. The event will take place in both gyms.
If you would like to help, please send checks made out to Troy Athens High School, Memo Line: Charity Week., 4333 John R. Rd, Troy, MI 48085.
