Orange High School Drama Club Raises over $1450 for Charity

The Orange High School Drama Club has raised over $1,450 for hungry families in Orange County.

For the past three years, the drama club has presented a winter show that is both a performance and a charity benefit.

This year, the student-run crew presented three episodes from “The Twilight Zone,” raising nearly $1,500 over just four nights of performances to benefit the Farmer Foodshare Donation Station at the Eno River Farmers Market. On Friday, Feb. 15, the drama club presented these funds to a Farmer Foodshare representative.

"$1,451.12 is a lot of money,” said Corly Jones, Manager of Eno River Farmers Market and the Farmer Foodshare Donation Station. “The money these incredible students raised through the production of ‘The Twilight Zone’ will provide six to eight families, approximately 30 people, with fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, cheeses and breads for over three months."

The Farmer Foodshare program was selected as this year’s charity because two club members have been volunteers with the organization since they were in elementary school.
