Raider Reader Fundraiser!

By: Morgan Mansfield/Sophomore Writer

The Blue Ridge Raider Reader is now fundraising!  We are selling Old Fashion Candy at the Blue Ridge High School and in some locations throughout our community.

Everything inside of the blue or white fundraising boxes is $2.00 each.  The boxes are filled with cookies and candies, such as, Reese’s Cups, Kit Kats, Oreos, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cheez-Its, Sour Patch Kids, Butter Fingers, and more!

The Raider Reader is trying to raise money for our staff T-shirts. The money that is left over will go towards our scholarship fund.

“I really appreciate that our school allows us to do fundraisers.  It allows us to get the equipment necessary for our programs,” said Kimberly Davenport, Raider Reader’s advisor.

The fundraiser will be from now until March 22nd, so support the Raider Reader by finding one of our staff members with a blue or white Old Fashion Candy box and buy some delicious treats!
