Students Sell T-Shirts To Benefit Children In Haiti

Williamson County Class Raises Money For Hands & Feet Project

Students from Daniel Johnson's Argumentation and Debate class at the Williamson County Campus of Columbia State are selling "Live Again" t-shirts for $10 each, with all proceeds earmarked to benefit Hands & Feet Project - a Franklin, TN-based organization that runs a children's village in Jacmel, Haiti, that cares for orphans and abandoned children.

The class project is led by students Shawn Davis, Trey Adcox, Kimberly Blanchard and Adam Zink. T-shirts are available now. To order a t-shirt, contact Kimberly Blanchard at 615-861-0974 or kim_claire@yahoo.com or Shawn Davis at 615-495-5256 or smichaeldavis_629428@hotmail.com.

In the past, Johnson's students have contributed to Tsunami relief efforts, helped victims of the Fairview Tornadoes, set up recycling efforts around the Williamson County Campus, sent much-needed care packages to U.S. troops overseas and more. But this year, students partnered with Franklin Tomorrow - a non-profit community organization that communicates a shared and evolving vision for the future of Franklin - with the hopes of furthering the educational experience of Williamson County students by drawing a connection between the City of Franklin, and the ongoing relief efforts in Haiti.
