Garden City High School’s college marketing classes and students in the ACE program collaborated on a holiday plant sale to raise money for Camp Anchor, a comprehensive year-round program serving 1,200 children and adults with special needs in the Town of Hempstead. They recently presented a check for $330 to representatives from Camp Anchor, Director MaryAnn Hanson and Vice President John McKenna.
The students worked together during their classes throughout the school day to sell the plants to students and staff. They worked on marketing strategies, sales, money management and customer service skills.
The district thanks teachers Erin McKinstry, Jeanne Colwell and Lloyd Sussman for helping to coordinate.
