Fundraiser to phenomenon | Canton Citizen

Fundraiser to phenomenon | Canton Citizen: On this day, all six of the district’s schools were transformed into a sea of blue and yellow as thousands donned their custom-made “Boston Strong” t-shirts, designed and sold by CHS students Meghan Peters, Jill Eckler, Courtney Loughnane and Kaitlyn Kelleher, with a big assist from CHS secretary Heather Sullivan and select staff at each of the schools.

The fundraiser quickly morphed into a phenomenon, and by the time the order was placed to Camelot Enterprises of Stoughton, the girls had managed to sell over 3,300 shirts — in a district of 3,262 students — while generating a profit in excess of $27,000 to be sent to the One Fund Boston.
