The WHS Habitat for Humanity Club hosted a benefit concert called Rock the Roof at the Crossroads in Garwood on May 5. The event raised about $450 for the charity.
Senior Sarah Collins helped to coordinate the concert event.
She said, "All of the money goes to helping the organization, so any money means a new house for a family in need."
Four WHS bands performed at the benefit concert: Transit Radio, Paper Mountains, Jay Ruggiero and The Deciders, featuring Social Studies Teacher Mr. Jason Grant. Ruggiero and Nick Ertman of Paper Mountains are also members of the Habitat for Humanity Club.
Club President senior Tyler Varian said, "We figured that a concert would be a good fundraiser because we have several club members in bands that were happy to perform."
Many students attended the event to support the organization and the bands. Senior Mia Ballan said, "The bands were really what made the experience, because each member was really talented, and you could tell that they were truly passionate about what they were doing."
The WHS Habitat for Humanity Club has been holding fundraisers throughout the year, such as a raffle for a parking spot, bake sales and several other events, according to Varian.
According to Collins, the WHS Habitat for Humanity Club may host an Ultimate Frisbee tournament at the end of the year as its final fundraiser.
