HAMLET — Fairview Heights Elementary School is pleased to announce that it has received more than $1,000 from Belk’s Angel Days Campaign.

The holiday fundraiser provided Rockingham Belk customers with an opportunity to support the local Title I elementary school. Customers received an ornament to place on the store’s angel tree for their $1 donation.

With 100 percent of the proceeds directly going back to the classroom, $1,077 was raised for Fairview Heights throughout the month of December.

“Honestly, I’m in shock” said Fairview Heights Principal Joyce McRae. “We appreciate our community’s support as well as Belk for creating this opportunity.”

Rockingham’s Belk manager, Lynette Kennedy, presented McRae and student government representatives with the check on April 21.

McRae says the money will go towards funding a school-wide community service project. Honoring both Belk and local residents, each student at Fairview Heights will paint a rock that will be placed in the school’s community garden.
