It’s that time of year again, time to give back to those in need this holiday season. Carbon High School in particular has a great way to give back. Throughout the month of December, Carbon High Student Government and other organizations at the school will be at local stores caroling and doing odd jobs at certain areas in town.
They are seeking the community’s help to reach their goal, requesting simply that the community gives as much as they are able. For the month, Carbon Dinos will experience parking lot lockdowns, annoying songs and pie wars.
The school’s goal this year is $19,500. Last year they surpassed their goal of $19,000 by earning $21,867. This money enabled them to give 35 families a happy Christmas. All money raised during the month will go to United Way, Spencer’s Wishes and Boys & Girls Club families to give them a Merry Christmas. This year they are hoping to give Christmas to 37 families in the community.
During the opening assembly that took place on Nov 30., $500 was raised by auctioning off rewards for students who had the most money.
The school has also been hosting benefit nights for the whole community to enjoy at Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Time and movie premieres.
On Dec. 6, Taco Time will donate a portion of its proceeds on anything sold that day. On Dec. 14, KFC will donate a portion of its proceeds on root beer floats sold between 6 and 8 p.m. Then on Dec. 15 Carbon High will be hosting its Carbon Christmas Celebration from 5-8 p.m.
On Dec. 16, the King Koal Theatre will host a kids movie and a midnight movie to benefit Carbon Christmas. Cold Stone Creamery and Little Caesars Pizza are also donating for this benefit. They are asking for a small donation or a gift donation.
