Change drive benefits search and rescue

Independence Academy, 675 29 Road, invites the community to donate to its 12th annual Change for Change Drive that will benefit the Mesa County Volunteer Search and Rescue K-9 Unit.

“We are encouraging our students and community members to bring in their ‘spare change’ to donate to this worthwhile cause,” a news release said.

The Change Drive will go through Feb. 27.

“If IACS students can raise more than $3,000, the faculty of IACS will compete in a ‘Lip Sync Battle’ in front of the whole school,” the release said.

Donations can be brought to the front office of Independence Academy. Call 254-6850 for information.
