      Junior Achievement raises money for Heartland students

      Junior Achievement is a non profit organization. The organization reaches over 4.4 million United States students. Volunteers are assigned to grade school classrooms where they are responsible for teaching students about the basis of business and entrepreneurship.

      Last year, the local chapterâ??s focus was to raise money.

      â??Last semester, our goal was fundraising for the program because it's free to the schools, so they don't have to pay for anything for volunteers to come in. It's basically through fundraising that we provide these programs to the schools. Last semester, our goal was to raise money. We raised about $630. Our goal was to beat that, so we raised about $800 this year,â?? says member Heather Hoing.

      Junior achievement is accepting donations at any time. You can donate by way of mail. Find the address below.
