High school music boosters have used clothing fundraiser

Wednesday, August 1, 2018 by lou wheeland Special to The Press in School

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.
