Homless_vigil_donation.pngThe 2010 Homeless Vigil received a huge boost today when the FHS Student Council received a $10,000 check from an anonymous donor through the Fayetteville Area Community Foundation. Sarah Diebold, who is the chair of the Foundation's board of directors, made the presentation to Taylor Power, co-chair of the 2010 Homeless Vigil, in the FHS Bulldog Lobby.

This incredibly generous donation raises the total collected for the Vigil to $27,000, the most ever raised by a Homeless Vigil. Thanks, again, to the hundreds of parents, students, and friends who donated to this most worthy cause. All of the funds raised will go to the district's Families in Transition program.
