Spirit Week at Wren High School concludes Friday night with the homecoming game against at Westside High School.
The game begins at 7:30 p.m.
Each year during Spirit Week, the school selects a family in need to raise money for during spirit week.
This year, Wren students are helping the Williams family.
The family has two children attending Wren.
The youngest son recently needed to have a bone marrow transplant. Luckily, the family’s oldest son had the same bone marrow type.
The surgery was held at Duke University. Renee Williams and her youngest son are still in Durham, NC away from the rest of their family, while they wait three months before the doctor clears them to go home.
Due to the medical bills, the family is in need of financial help.
Students hope to raise more than $10,000 for this family.
Spirit Week kicked off Monday. Students didn’t let a school holiday stop them from participating in Spirit Week events. They held a Dodge Ball Tournament that night in the Wren High Gym.
Also on Monday, Mozzarelli’s Restaurant in Anderson donated a percentage of profits that night back to the school to help with the Spirit Week fundraising for the Williams family.
On Tuesday, the school held a Neon Rave in the school gym.
On Wednesday, diners eating at Los Compadres on Highway 81 or YoGo Creations in the Bi-Lo Shopping Center have a chance to help the fundraising effort. Those restaurants have agreed to donate a percentage of their profits Wednesday to the fundraising effort. Be sure and tell the restaurants you’re with Wren High School.
