High school music boosters have used clothing fundraiser
Parkland High School’s Music Boosters Association was accepting used clothing on May 5 to raise funds for three scholarships.
Clothing is sold by the pound, then either forwarded to Third World countries or repurposed as needed.
Funds are then used for three $1,000 scholarships for musicians in the band, orchestra and chorus.
