Kids pitch in

 | 

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Students at R.J. Reynolds High School and Forsyth County Day School are pitching in to build a house for Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County.

The students aim to raise $50,000 to pay for construction costs, and then work with the homeowner family, faculty from both schools and Habitat staff to build the home.

The fundraising effort includes car washes, homecoming dances, promotions at football games, a battle of the bands and a gospel sing.

For a month, through Nov. 19, Pizza Hut is donating 20 percent of all sales to the project, while the Wilco/Exxon station at Peace Haven and County Club roads donated two cents from every gallon of gas it sold in October.
