Senior School Service Learning Club T-Shirt Sale Raises Nearly $1,700 for Food Bank

As a COVID-19 fundraising project, students in the Shady Side Academy Senior School Service Learning Club decided to design and sell T-shirts with SSA's distance learning motto, "Together Apart," on them, with all proceeds going to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The club advertised the T-shirts via the school's daily bulletin, social media and e-newsletter, ultimately selling 170 shirts for a total of $1,693.74 raised for the food bank. The funds will provide more than 8,000 meals for local families in need.

Congratulations to the Service Learning Club and faculty advisor Lindsey Myers and thank you to all of the SSA community members who purchased T-shirts!
