The 6th and 7th grade Heartwood students at the Bothin Resource Center program have decided
to put their talents together to create a fundraising business to support the school and
simultaneously provide all of us with the opportunity to purchase cozy hooded sweatshirts for the
coming winter months. With the holiday gift-giving season in full swing, these hoodies will
make excellent gifts. The students have chosen to support a local screen printer who is able to
offer competitive pricing and still customize their product.
If you would like to order one of these amazing hoodies, please click on this link and fill out the Google form.
