EAHS receives huge payout from mattress fundraiser

Staff Report

East Ascension High School has made headlines twice before, breaking their own national record of “Most Dollars Raised at a CFS Mattress Fundraiser.” However, this year they smashed their previous records raising $58,295 in just one day.

The hard-hit town of Gonzales has been in recovery mode from recent flood devastation. Despite the hardship, their positive attitude and “can do” motivation has kept them afloat, maintaining business as usual when it comes to growth and education.

We at East Ascension High School are very grateful to the people of the Ascension Parish community for supporting our school through their overwhelming support of our fifth annual Mattress Fundraiser," said Jamie Andrews of East Ascension High School. "We take comfort in knowing that those who purchased from this sale are receiving a high-quality product at an unbelievable price."

The Mattress Fundraiser has become a reliable avenue for over sixteen organizations on our campus to help finance their various needs - from transportation costs of our Spartan band to travel expenses to the National Beta convention to risers for our choir. We are proud to have regained the national record, raising $58,295 this year and we’re thankful to work with the organizer, Custom Fundraising Solutions year after year.”

East Ascension High School was not the only one to benefit from the community’s overwhelming support of the annual Mattress Fundraiser.

This year our parish has suffered greatly due to the natural disaster of the August floods - but we continue to show that we are ASCENSION STRONG by sharing our payout with St. Amant High School,"Andrews explained.

Custom Fundraising Solutions of Louisiana is proud to share in that EAHS pride, giving thousands of dollars back to each and every organization they work with across the state. The 70 combined CFS locations nationwide have officially given back over $20 million dollars to schools and organizations across America since 2005.
