High school students use dunk tank to raise hurricane relief funds
ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -
Local high school students are using fun homecoming week festivities to support an important cause.
It's homecoming week at Lourdes High School and this year's fun dunk tank activity, sending the principal and school staff into the water, is raising money for hurricane relief.
This, as Rochester Catholic Schools is launching a campaign--asking each family to give at least $1 per student to help re-build Catholic schools impacted by recent hurricanes.
Lourdes will collect the money raised during its Homecoming Mass Thursday.
"We're so blessed up here that we don't have any terrible natural disasters and the south is so affected by hurricane Irma and hurricane Harvey that it's really just great for us to help out them because we can," said Josie Hansen, a senior. "Because we would want them to help out us if we were in that situation."
All funds raised from Wednesday's dunk contest will go to the National Catholic Educational Association.
