Springboro raising money for Trotwood schools

The Springboro community and its schools have begun a district-wide fundraiser to help Trotwood-Madison City Schools continue its tornado relief efforts.

More than 200 students who attend Trotwood-Madison City Schools were displaced from their homes because of the tornadoes that hit the city of Trotwood in the Memorial Day outbreak.

For “The Trotwood-Madison Project,” each of the six Springboro schools buildings will conduct their own type of fundraiser, which will take place on various days through Sept. 27.

Any funds raised will go toward school uniforms for the Trotwood school system students who were displaced. The goal is for each student to have three school uniforms for this school year, according a special project web page created by Springboro schools.

Any additional funds over this goal will go toward additional uniforms for those Trotwood city schools students most in need, according to the web page.

Here are some of the projects already announced:

• Springboro schools are offering “Panther Pride/#DaytonStrong” T-shirts for $10 to $12

• The Springboro community is being asked to spend $5 on a ticket to Friday’s varsity football scrimmage at Watkins Stadium

• “Change Buckets” will be deployed throughout Springboro High School. Students and staff will be encouraged to drop any loose change into gallon buckets between classes.
