The traveler’s club is partnering with Goodwill for the fundraiser. It’s collecting anything from clothing to furniture and electronics. The group goes on a trip every two years and for many of these students fundraisers are the way they pay for their entire trip.
Twenty six students will be going to Belize in 2015 and the organizer says for many it’ll be their first time out of the country.
“We deal with local guides and a fantastic tour guide who teaches us about the culture has us practice the language, has us eating, drinking traditional foods. The entire trip is built as an educational experience,” said Jill Plumb, a teacher at Springfield High School.
The group collected donations at the high school until 8:00 p.m. Sunday night.
