The recent HFM BOCES Jeans Day fundraiser raised approximately $600 to benefit wounded veterans and their families.
On Nov. 9 staff and students donated $5 or $1 and wore jeans to school to raise money for the Wounded Warrior project. Anyone who has not turned in their money, so far, is encouraged to do so as soon as possible.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a national organization that raises awareness and enlists the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, helps injured service members aid and assist each other, and provides unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members and their families.
More than 130 employees and students participated in this year’s fundraiser, which was planned to coincide with Veterans Day.
