Student council silent auction to benefit backpack program
The West Fargo High School Student Council will be conducting a silent auction during West Fargo High's Academic Awards Recognition event set for tonight (May 12), at 6 p.m. in the high school.
All proceeds from the silent auction will go to the Backpack Program, which involves sending weekend meals home with needy school children who otherwise wouldn't eat again until Monday morning when they return to their school building.
West Fargo High has piloted the program this year and is committed to taking it to the next level. Their goal is to reach a sustainable level similar to communities West Fargo's size over 1,000 students.
