FLEMINGTON, NJ - Hunterdon Central Regional High School graduating senior and athlete, Bella Almeida, with her mom, created a designed t-shirt to reflect what students are dealing with during quarantine, and donated all the proceeds to the Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation.
With the phrase, "Socially Distant – United for Life," Almeida enlisted the help of Sneakers Plus in Flemington to create and sell 500 #Quaranteens t-shirts.
Almeida then presented the foundation with a check for $2,686, the proceeds from the sales of the shirts.
"I am thrilled by the strong response from our community to support our local healthcare heroes working tirelessly in the fight against COVID-19," she said in a release. "Thank you to everyone involved for turning a small idea crafted at the kitchen table into a fantastic community fundraiser."
Almeida will be attending Duke University in the fall to study neuroscience.
