The funds will be used by the non-profit for its Major Grant program in Camas schools, which support teacher-sponsored programs in early learning, language, arts, science, math, social studies and history.

“Many thanks to the student callers from Skyridge and Liberty Associated Student Body, CHS Key Club members and other individuals that gave us a few hours,” stated a press release from the organization.

“Also a big thanks to the data-king Jeff Huth and many other adult volunteers.”
