The results are in! Central raised a grand total of $7,000.64 during the 2014 Pitch In week for the Vestavia Hills City Schools Foundation. Mrs. Vickers’ class, by raising $821.97, is the winner of the ice cream party and the $50 classroom grant.
The many heavy buckets from the classrooms showed that Pitch In had lots of great support from the teachers, the SAC advisors and reps, the students and their parents—in addition to the incredible support from Central’s administration.
Central’s total contribution included $2,009.64 in change; $1,204 in cash; and $3,587 in checks. Every penny, nickel, dime and quarter really did make a difference! In addition, the Foundation received new pledges or payments on existing pledges from several VHEC families.
Central’s Pitch In donations will be added to the Foundation’s permanent endowment, where the money will be invested and the interest used for many years to come to award grants to all Vestavia schools. These grants help our schools fund technology improvements, curriculum enhancements, and professional development training for teachers.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this contribution possible!
