The team set up donation boxes around campus, encouraged people to participate in the drive on social media and teachers hosted class competitions tracking who donated the most items.
The drive ended during the senior night girls basketball game against Desert Ridge High School. Personnel from the Yuma Police Department and Amberly’s Place attended the event and Miss Yuma County, Haley Wright, sang the “Star Spangled Banner.”
“Amberly’s Place is a nonprofit and it’s up to us, the community, to keep them running and I hope it encourages more people and other teams to host fundraisers and drives,” GRHS Girls Basketball Team Captain Holly Binder said.
