School Chest Raises $97K for Invisible Children

DHS announced grand fundraising total for School Chest.

Deerfield High School raised $97,142.37 during this year's School Chest fundraiser.

District 113 caught the BIG announcement on camera. Click here to watch a video of School Chest organizers broadcasting the fundraising total to the rest of the high school.

Each year DHS asks students, staff and the rest of the community to open their wallets for a good cause. This year all of the proceeds will go to Invisible Children. The organization is aimed at trying to stop the use of child soldiers in Africa.

Congratulations to everyone who participated and thank you for your contributions!
