BGA Donates over $1800 to HTHH Haiti Disaster Relief Fund
by Jenny Dyer, Ph.D.
Battleground Academy's Middle School, Grades 5-8, collected over $1,800 from their students as a fundraiser for Haiti Relief efforts. The students gave a minimum donation of $5 for the privilege of wearing blue jeans to school (in exchange for their typical uniform attire).
Jonathan Reiss and Harris Jones, seventh graders at BGA Middle School seen in the photo above, presented the check this week to Senator Frist.
Sen. Frist told the young men that this money would be used for tetanus vaccines (via Mobile Medical Disaster Relief) and fuel for helicopters (via Samaritan Air), to name a couple of ways the money is being spent right now.
The BGA Haiti Fundraiser was led by Keli Kennedy the Community Service Coordinator.
