Moffat County High School seeks receipts for fundraiser
Local residents can help with the issue of school funding as Moffat County High School raises money in the weeks to come.
MCHS is participating in the AmeriGas School Days Program, and people can bring in their receipts from propane to join in the effort. For every gallon of gas accounted for, the company will donate two cents to the school in question.
The tally adds up fast, and last May, AmeriGas awarded nearly $2,000 to MCHS.
Receipts can be turned in at the school to Stephanie Ahlstrom, athletics secretary.
For more information, call 970-824-7036 or 970-824-4221.
