Students in the Central High School choir program recently held a one-day fundraiser for the Western Kenosha County families hit by flooding in July.

The students were able to raise over $450 in 90 minutes during three lunch periods of soliciting donations. The choir students also collected some non-perishable food items as well. The proceeds of the fundraising were delivered by choir director Rob Clark and some choir students to The Sharing Center in Trevor, one of the agencies coordinating flood relief.

“When we had the devastation from the floods in July, I was teaching summer school,” Clark said. “I was seeing and hearing so many of our students, staff and our feeder school students were left with little to nothing. I immediately knew I wanted to get my choir students involved.”

Clark asked for and received permission from administration to hold the fundraiser. Students asked for donations from fellow students during lunch. Staff that made a monetary donation were able to wear jeans for the day.

“With such a generous and caring student body and staff, we were able to raise funds,” Clark said.
