From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — In an effort to avoid multiple fundraisers for multiple sports and allow athletic donors the chance to make individual donations to the entire athletic department, Hewitt-Trussville Athletics has launched the HTen fundraising program. Donors can join the program for as little as $10 per year and will receive a window decal to signify their support of HT athletics.
Athletic Director Lance Walker said corporate donations would be handled separately and the goal of the HTen program was to streamline individual giving. The HTen plan is modeled after a similar program used by Clemson.
Donors can follow the link to Hewitt-Trussville Athletics to participate in the plan.
Below are some of the questions and answers provide by the athletic department, followed by a video released on Saturday morning.
