Forest Hills Central students raise money to help family with home

Kent County

ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Students at Forest Hills Central High School have raised enough money to help a family acquire a home.

The students raised $21,000 — more than double its goal — to help families with gifts at Christmas. The balance will be used by Family Promise of Grand Rapids to help a family with housing.

Family Promise purchases and renovates affordable homes. After a year, a family gets to keep the home.

Forest Hills Central principal Steve Passinault says the pandemic has given students an “opportunity to reflect on what is most important.”
