The period 5 Entrepreneurship class donated $300 from their t-shirt sales to the Make-AWish Foundation, a non-profit organization that grants children with life-threatening illnesses with special, once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

The Entrepreneurship class, run by Mrs. Yerina, designed and sold t-shirts to the THS student body as a way to gain hands-on business experience as well as give back to the community. The t-shirts, white and longsleeve with a design of a muscular cartoon eagle drawn by junior Drew Haight, were sold for $15. For every t-shirt sold, the class gave $1 back to the foundation.

Make-A-Wish Representative Kim Smith has expressed thanks on behalf of the foundation for Trumbull’s support amongst many other high schools that are rallying together to make donations.

“We can’t do what we do without support like all of you, and what we say at Make-A-Wish is the doctors provide the medicine, we provide the magic,” Smith states
