Student Council members will spend the night in makeshift housing on the front lawn of FHS, keeping warm from a fire in a barrel. Fayetteville residents are encouraged to stop by and leave a monetary donation or contribute non-perishable food items. Both the cash donations and the food items will be used to help the district's Families in Transition program. Click here to learn more about the program.
