Heavenly Hats Fundraiser
Alder Green Team is sponsoring a Heavenly Hats Day Fundraiser on Friday, October 11th. Heavenly Hats collects and distributes brand new hats of all kinds to those heroes of all ages who lose their hair due to the treatment of cancer or many other medical conditions which may cause hair loss.
Green team members will be coming to homerooms to pre-sell wristbands. The cost to wear a hat is $1.00. The wristbands will be used to help us keep track of the students that actually paid to wear a hat on October 11th. Wristbands will be delivered during homeroom on Friday, October 11th. Only students wearing wrist bands will be able to wear a hat.
