IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO DONATE!

 
 
Belton High School SADD is doing a fundraiser in December to spread “Cheer and Chips!”
Inspired by the holiday season, students will write encouraging messages to be attached to a bag of Sun Chips and delivered to the recipient during advisory and/or lunch.
The idea is to share a delicious (and healthy whole-grain) snack and spread cheer throughout the BHS Community!
SADD needs your help to make this happen!
Would you be willing to donate a bulk package of Sun Chips for our cause? 
You can arrange to get your monetary or chip donations (they are $12 at Sam’s Club) to Mrs. Wilson at Belton High School.
We are going to charge students $1 per message/chip combo, and the funds we raise will be used to support After Prom and other SADD events.
Thank you so much for reading, and feel free to send Kelly Wilson (kwilson@bsd124.org) any questions you may have!
