As part of a yearly fundraiser, students in the Health Occupations/HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) Club at Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School collected donations for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. 

Students and staff participated by giving $1 donations and filling out Celebration of Life Birthday Cards, which were added to the Celebration of Life Wall, outside the school’s guidance office.  At the end of the fundraiser, the Health Occupations/HOSA students raised nearly $300.
