Summerland Secondary School’s Civics 11 class, in a day-long fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, raised $400 during a special Heart Dog Day on Wednesday.

The class sold heart-warming hot and veggie dogs, apples, granola bars, pop, and water to staff and students during morning break and lunch.

The students worked for two months to organize the project, which is part of their provincial curriculum.

The class would like to thanks Nesters Market and Billy Boerboom of Windmill Orchards for their food contributions.

“This project taught us a lot and brought us together in one big unified effort,” said Jonah Snider, one of the students in the class.
