English teacher Nancy Close started the Starr’s Mill HERO Club eight years ago when a student came to her wanting the club. The club raises money to give to H.E.R.O. for Children, an organization that helps kids affected by HIV/AIDS.

During the fall semester final exams, the club held fundraisers and passed out candy canes, raising $590 to donate to the University of Georgia’s chapter of HERO. UGA HERO then uses these funds to hold camps and seminars for children.

“Knowing that the money goes to help a worthy cause is my favorite part,” Close said.
