Add some fuel to the fire by helping students at Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) and/or Camden High School (CHS) raise money for the United Way of Kershaw County this week.

This is the fifth year the two schools have competed to see who can raise the most funds to help various programs sponsored by the United Way in Kershaw County. In 2012, the two schools raised almost $30,000. CHS won both the fundraising effort and the football game last year, and CHS Student Council President Haley Maree said they plan to win this year.

Both schools will host their own special lunch time activities to raise money throughout the week. Maree said the schools will receive a percentage of their sales at the various dinner nights and businesses usually donate to their area school, Maree said.
