Fruita Monument clubs raise $3,200
Students of the Fruita Monument High School Interact and Key Clubs have raised a total of $3,200 to benefit the Side-by-Side (SXS) special education program at the school.
The club raised more than $2,200 through efforts such as bake sales, a change drive, volunteering at a Tour of the Moon bike ride aid station and donation solicitations. The students also were awarded a $1,000 matching grant from Kids Giving.
The money will enable special education students in the SXS program to develop the life skills necessary for leading independent lives. An oven range, Kindle e-readers and Grand Valley Transit passes will be purchased with the funds.
