Joining forces to raise money, Southside and Northside DECA members passed donation buckets at the basketball game on Jan. 26 for Thomas Northrup, a student who was injured in a car accident Jan. 24.
Members set up a donation bucket at the entrance of the stadium and made posters in support of the cause. The cheerleaders also passed around donation buckets to the audience.
“We just went out on the court and had buckets after they made an announcement that both schools were raising money for Thomas. We did this because it was the right thing to do. He is a student at our school and we wanted to help,” senior Ashley Boyd said.
The combined efforts at the game raised roughly 2,300 dollars. Assistant principal Travis Biggs set up a donation bucket during A and B lunches for a few days early last week, which raised roughly 500 dollars.
The Facebook page “Prayers for Thomas” gives updates on his medical condition periodically and information about how to help the cause. The “Pray for Thomas” Gofundme currently accepts donations for his medical recovery.
