Fundraising at Viewpoint School
By: Ben Moody of Viewpoint Heal the Bay Club
Last month, as an initiative to raise funds for Heal the Bay, Viewpoint’s Heal the
Bay Club founder and co-president Ben Moody sold various clothing items to the
students that are members of the club.
He worked with his school’s administrative team and his club sponsor to approve the designs on the clothes, and he set up an online store with a local vendor for the students to purchase for themselves T-shirts, and or hoodies for them to wear at the cleanups throughout the year. Each clothing item had an additional two dollars built into the price above the actual cost to act as a fundraising effort for Heal the Bay once the sale was over.
The students were given 3 weeks in total to order shirts and hoodies from the online store, and once the orders were all completed and distributed the vendor sent a check to Heal the Bay for a grand total of $46.85.
The fundraiser helped spread the club throughout Viewpoint school, as well as
donate money to the amazing organization that is Heal the Bay.
