High School Raises $2,000 For Haiti

RAHWAY—Students from Rahway High School’s Social Action Club sold paper hearts to raise money for victims of the Haitian earthquake disaster. So far, the initiative has raised over $2,000 to be donated to the American Red Cross International Disaster Relief Fund.

The fundraiser, conceived and organized by English teacher Elizabeth Graner Jotz, has become a collaborative effort involving the Social Action Club, the ESL classes, Student Government Association and several other schools in the district.  Hearts are sold for $1 each or three for $2, and are on display in the halls of Rahway High School.

To donate, contact Jotz at ejotz@rahway.net.
