Baking for Babies Raises Money for Preemies

Members of the FBLA club at Fayette County High are learning that successful business leaders are also highly involved in their communities. That’s why they created the Baking for Babies fundraiser to benefit the March of Dimes in its efforts to save the lives of premature babies.

Every Wednesday throughout the month of March FBLA students held a bake sale during lunch offering delicious items such as cookies, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls and brownies. Additionally, club members sold March of Dimes t-shirts that were supplied by local businessman Steve McCullough of MAC TEE’s.

The sales generated over $600, all of which was donated to the March of Dimes.

“The generosity and dedication of the Fayette County High School community shined when donating to this worthy project,” says business and computer science teacher Jennifer Metcalfe.
