Radiology Students Raise Money for Backpack Buddies

(November 19, 2019) Students in the radiology program at Hillyard Technical Center help Second Harvest each year with a fundraising project by selling t-shirts. This year, they raised $315.75 for Backpack Buddies. This is the sixth year the classes have raised funds for Backpack Buddies.

Students sold radiology shirts to clinical sites, family members, and friends, with 25% of the proceeds going to Second Harvest. The amount raised this year is enough to fund approximately 63 backpacks.

Backpack Buddies helps battle food insecurity in our community by providing children enrolled in the program with a healthy breakfast, a healthy lunch, and a healthy snack each weekend during the school year.
