There aren’t many better ways to start off your day than with Krispy Kreme donuts for $1 on a 9:30 start. This is how the Conservative Club greeted the students and teachers of Prospect on the morning of Nov. 5.
This is the club’s first fundraiser of the year, but according to junior Connor DuShane, the club plans to hold more fundraisers to help out organizations and raise awareness for the club.
All of the money raised at the donut sale was donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. This organization helps injured war veterans recover from physical and mental injuries after their time in the military.
The Conservative Club wanted to donate to this cause because they felt it was right to support the people who served for our country. Before school and during lunch hours, the club raised a total of $324.68, according to club sponsors Lance Burmeister and Qiana Drye.
The club meets in room 162 every other Thursday after school. The main goal of the Conservative Club is to raise awareness for politics. According to DuShane, this club is open to anyone who is interested in politics and likes to share their political opinions.
“If people come to the meeting and they leave more educated, then the goal has been achieved,” DuShane says.
