HHS Leos to raise money for disabilities program

When Kyle Unruh and her fellow Leos Club members at Hillsboro High School learned that a new program to teach employability skills to young adults with disabilities was coming to Tabor College, they immediately wanted to help get it off the ground.

“I have a sister who is in special education, and I see it as something she might benefit from in the future,” Unruh said. “We thought it would be a good idea to bet the school involved with something that would help our local community as well.”

Fundraising activities Monday through Feb. 10 will benefit Marion County Project SEARCH

Monday, Wendy’s will donate 20 percent of its sales from 5 to 8 p.m. to the cause. 

A raffle Feb. 10 at the high school home basketball games will include items donated by area businesses.

“We had businesses calling us offering to donate things for the raffle, and that’s been exciting to have so much support from the community at the beginning,” Unruh said.

Throughout the week, high school students will participate in a variety of in-school activities to raise money, with an overall goal of $750.

“If the whole school reaches the goal, we’re going to have a free bowling party,” Unruh said.

Donations in the form of checks made out to “HHS Leos” can be dropped off at the Hillsboro Middle/High School office throughout the week. 

More information is available by e-mailing Kyle Unruh at or by calling Bob Woelk at (620)-947-3184.
