A Haverford High School 10th-grader is hoping to get the school and at-large Haverford Communities to help the high school win up to $5,000 in grant money from a local bank.
Profits from the sales go to several charities that include causes like helping the homeless, animal shelters and Alzheimer's.
April Forgeng of the Haverford High School English Department contacted Patch about the project and about the school's entry in the Beneficial Bank Contest.

The Beneficial Foundation School Challenge gave students at schools in the Delaware Valley the opportunity to put their creative and strategic thinking skills to the test. Students, under the guidance of a teacher or other staff member, developed project concepts in one of three areas—Financial Literacy/Math, Science/History or Language Arts/Reading—that would create an impactful, long-term improvement at their school.
After the first round of judging, we have selected the finalists whose concepts will now compete for up to $5,000 in grant money.
