Students have been raising money since the end of August through various activities such as community car washes, a silent auction, a bottle drive and canvasing the community for donations.

In addition to the hair cutting, students held a grad auction where younger students bid on Grade 12 students to do things such as drive them to school or make and deliver food to them.
