FRONTENAC — Frontenac High School’s Raider Ink, is doubling down on the benefit of a donation of t-shirts.
Raider Ink is a print design class at Frontenac High School. The class screen prints, makes banners, signs and more for individuals and organizations in the community. Recently they received a large donation of t-shirts, and have used them to continue charitable efforts in the community and around the world.
Frontenac High School Technology Instructor Eric Gudde said students learn more than just graphic design in the class — they learn how to give back.
“They learn graphics, but most importantly they learn to give back and help the community,” he said.
In the past six years they have raised thousands of dollars for others through their charitable organization Raider Relief.
The students helped raise money by donating shirts to sell for an individual with cancer in Altamont.
“It is neat for them to be part of people's stories,” Gudde said.
The group also partnered with Westside and sold shirts for One Day Without Shoes, which raised $1,000 purchasing 46 pairs of shoes for students in need at Westside.
Recently, their relief reached — and continues to reach — all the way to Haiti where the shirts help raise funds for Haitians in need.
