Seniors sponsor GOODWILL DONATION DRIVE

The Goodwill trailer can be found at the edge of the parking lot, east of tennis court.

  Do you need to get rid of extra clutter around your house? The Bertrand High School senior class has a fantastic way to help you out. They are sponsoring a Goodwill Donation Drive to raise money for graduation fees. The opportunity to bring unwanted items will be available from now until Wednesday November 20th. The trailer is located on the east side of the tennis court by the school parking lot.

Stop by to place your gently used items such as clothing, household items, shoes, boots, purses, belts, hats, books, computers, printers, and monitors inside the Goodwill trailer!! Unfortunately, they will not be accepting televisions, furniture, mattresses or other large items due to a lack of space. Receipts for tax deductions are available. Please contact Goodwill Industries of Greater Nebraska, Inc. at (308) 384-7896 for any questions. 

Thanks to all in advance for helping out with this worthy project. Your generosity is very appreciate!

National Honor Society Scholarship Blood Drive
Tuesday, April 9, 2019
12:00(noon)-6:00
Bertrand Community Building

Donating blood is always a great way to help those in need. During a natural disaster, it becomes even more important. The Red Cross has had to cancel over 500 blood donations due the flooding in Nebraska. Let’s do our part!

By giving blood, not only will you be making an impact on the lives of others, but helping the Bertrand Chapter of NHS earn money for student scholarships.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the blood drive on April 9th! You can make an appointment by calling the school (472-3427) or walk-in!
