 The cooling weather and falling leaves show that autumn has arrived, and with the changing season comes a time to give thanks. Although Prospects You’ve Got Gobbled has come to a close, there is a new opportunity to help others this  provide season. This year ASB is teaming up with Folds of Honor to raise $10,000 for families of veterans between November 9th and December 1st..

According to the Folds of Honor website, Folds of Honor is a non-profit organization that provides academic scholarships to the families of first responders and disabled/fallen soldiers. 

ASB teamed up with Knights’ Way to send out the message about Folds of Honor as Knights’ Way included it as part of their loyalty presentation during the second quarter. During the presentation, the Knights’ Way leaders explained what Folds of Honor was and showcased an activity to help raise money. 

Each 2nd hour class made a goal for how much money they want to raise as a class. Once that goal was made, the class was given wrapping paper and other craft supplies, which was used to decorate their door in a patriotic way. Now the hallways of Prospect are lined with red, white, and blue. 

Along with decorating their classroom door, they also decorated a box that would hold the money that the students raised. If they were able to reach their monetary goal, ASB advisor Jenna Sandstead said that breakfast would be given out.

There are two ways students can help raise money. They can bring money into their classrooms, and that money will help them reach their class goal. Or, if they choose, they can pay electronically by scanning a QR code, which will be anonymous. Although it will not help the class reach their goal, it would still benefit the program till December first.

“I believe [Folds of Honor] allows … for our students to think about these service men and women who do so much for us that goes unseen, in terms of providing the privileges and freedoms that we have on a daily basis,”  Sandstead said.
