DEERFIELD-IL – With a disappointing total of roughly $80,000, School Chest passed legislation on Monday to continue raising funds through the ’08 school year. Winter Break was not easy for the School Chest members. There were many tears and temper tantrums for not living up to last year’s expectations. “I just can’t believe it,” said one disappointed member. “Everyone knows that it takes at least $130,000 to make a difference.”
Rest assured that the next five months or so will be filled with more of that School Chest spirit. Within about five months, mathematicians estimate that School Chest will have raised $480,000 after it’s all said and done.
