Online Auction to Benefit C-D Backpack Program

Students in the Advanced Placement (AP) European History class are hosting an online auction from Thursday, June 10 through Sunday, June 13, 2021.

All proceeds will benefit the Cairo-Durham Backpack Program, which provides some of our elementary students with food during the weekends and school breaks, as well as the End Fund, an organization that provides resources to communities affected by tropical diseases in regions of the world that are typically underserved.

The auction is part of the students’ WE Service Learning project that focuses on poverty and the issues that stem from it.
