JHS Interact Club raises relief funds

JASPER —The Jasper High School Interact Club is raising funds to be used for tornado stricken areas in Alabama.

The Interact Club, which officially formed in the fall of 2018, is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Jasper. Interact Clubs organizes two projects each year, one that helps their school or community and another that promotes international understanding. The Interact Club’s International Committee, led by JHS Junior Bre Zehr, chose disaster relief as their area of focus for the 2018-2019 school year. After a series of deadly tornadoes struck Lee County in eastern Alabama on March 3, the local students sprang into action. They have had two bake sales at the high school, and also plan to fix puppy chow to sell at the school. The club has already raised in excess of $120 to be sent to Alabama’s tornado relief. Club plans also include placing donation containers at Jasper businesses. Their fundraising efforts will continue until Friday, April 19.

The Rotary Club of Jasper also is taking part in the tornado relief project. Members are donating funds at their weekly meetings to augment the funds raised by their high school club.

Donations may be made by contacting any Rotary Club member or visiting their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RotaryClubofJasperIndiana/.

Donations will be accepted until Friday, April 19. For more information, contact Megan Johnson, Interact Club sponsor at Jasper High School, or Judi Brown, member of the Rotary Club, at 812-482-1171, ext. 3446.
