Proctor Students Organize an Andover Food Pantry Fundraiser

By Chuck Will, Proctor Academy

During the second week of February, the Proctor Student Leadership group organized an Andover Food Pantry fundraiser. Students sold paper hearts in the dining hall during lunch on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of that week, with the different classes competing to see which one could buy the most hearts. Faculty and staff got involve as well.

Halfway through the first day, the leadership group quickly ran out of hearts, proving that they had tapped into something good! It turned out to be the most successful Student Leadership fundraiser in recent years.

The hearts were sold for 25 cents and then taped on the wall of the dining hall. The grand total raised of $350 is being donated to the Andover Food Pantry in the name of the Class of 2016.
