WEST CALDWELL, NJ — The student government at James Caldwell High School recently raised funds for the West Essex First Aid Squad and the Caldwell Food Pantry.

Students created 14 designs that were posted on Instagram and a Google form was emailed to students to vote over a 24-hour period.  The top two picks were chosen to be sold.  Senior Kate Campion created the blue tie-dyed shirt and junior Scott Bivona created the grey shirt.  

The shirts were sold over a two-week period and raised more than $6,000, which was split equally between the two groups.
