Following a record-breaking five day drive that resulted in over $3500 in cash, wish list items, labor and other donations, the 6th grade class traveled to South Carolina to deliver their stash.  Board Member Connie Jones joined students at the Home to wrap gifts for children currently being served by Calvary Home.  While in South Carolina, the group met Calvary Home Executive Director Greg Skipper at Lowes to purchase a refrigerator with some of the money raised.  Peyton Coppage challenged family members and friends to match her $100 donation, resulting in cash offerings totaling $1300.  Faculty coordinator, Johnathan BySura, estimates that Middle School students have raised over $11,000 in the last five years, adding "This is truly a remarkable accomplishment!"
