Thirty-seven dozen green-and-white frosted doughnuts sold out within minutes last Thursday at Shelton Intermediate School. Even those students who walked away empty-handed dropped money in a collection jar.
The school’s Teen CORP (community outreach program) held the sale to raise money for a special project, in honor of the Sandy Hook Elementary students and teachers killed. While each doughnut was priced at a dollar, kids were paying with five- or 10-dollar bills, and one parent donated a check for $250. Altogether, the sale raised $1,000 in about 15 minutes, according to Teen CORP club adviser Gail Gibbons.
