FTHS Community Continues Successful Fundraising Campaign for Pediatric Wing at CentraState Medical Center

The Freehold Township High School community surpassed last year’s “Coins for Kids” fundraising efforts to benefit the pediatric wing of CentraState Medical Center. 

For a few months earlier this year, buckets brought around by Peer Leaders were available during lunch for anyone to drop in their spare change. All that spare change added up, resulting in $2,500 raised for the CentraState Healthcare Foundation. This year’s funds will be used to purchase a bubble wall. This portable device can be rolled into a child’s exam room and distract them while procedures, like inserting an IV, are being performed.

The “Coins for Kids” initiative was created by Health & Physical Education teacher Frank Gualtieri and coordinated through the Peer Leadership program led by advisor Sean Leahy.
