The staff and students of Fruita Middle school are planning a series of fundraisers to help one of their own.
McKenzie White, now 14, became a paraplegic after she suffered a heart attack in the first grade. Since then, her mother, Mary White, has struggled to find an affordable, wheelchair-accessible home for her daughters.
Their friends at Fruita Middle School are working to build this deserving family a new place to live with The White Home Project.
The first fundraiser is a Staff v. Staff Volleyball game at the FMS gym Friday, April 3 at 3:15 p.m. Admission is $2 per person. Sixth and seventh grade students are organizing concessions and other fundraising opportunities before, during and after the game.
The second event is a Yard Sale Saturday, April 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The sale will be at the school. Booth space is available for $15.
For more information on either of these events, call 254-6568.
