Laurel High School Donates Homecoming Budget to Fire Relief

LAUREL — A Montana high school donated all of the money from its homecoming budget for fire relief in the state.

KULR-TV reports Laurel High School also helped raise money and donated the proceeds to the Montana Stockgrowers Association, a nonprofit organization with the mission to protect and enhance Montana ranch families’ ability to grow and deliver safe, healthy, environmentally wholesome beef to the world.

The school’s senior class collaboratively decided to use the funds that would normally go to making a float.

The school’s Student Body President Austin Amestoy says the seniors put those funds toward a fire relief fund and from there, they used the time they spent making the float to collect more donations for the fund.

Laurel High School donated more than $1,100 for the relief fund.
