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.
The district’s elementary, intermediate and junior high schools are planning fundraising activities as well.
Any monetary donations collected from the district-wide fundraiser will need to be accepted by the end of the day on Sept. 27.
