“Be a Part of the Pride,” a group created to facilitate a summer makeover at Red Bank High School, launched a campaign to raise money and recruit volunteers for the effort. The committee consists of community and business leaders, civic groups, parents, students, faculty, and alumni.
The group believes that with the addition of a new middle school, there is a unique opportunity to provide the students of Red Bank with a "premier combined campus for middle and high school."
The excitement of bringing together a group of people with the common goal of improving Red Bank High School and continuing the rich tradition of Red Bank pride is taking seed throughout the community, officials said. During the week of July 21 as many as 400 volunteers are expected to converge on the campus to update the school’s physical environment. They will paint, clean, organize and transform 45 classrooms and several outdoor spaces.
In addition to volunteers, funds are needed to purchase renovation supplies and vital classroom materials. The committee has set a fundraising goal of $150,000 and is reaching out to individuals and businesses for sponsorships and donations.
