On March 22nd and 23rd of 2023, the Clarkston High School Interact Club put on a bake sale during the school days. Over the course of two days, our committed high schoolers made baked goods consisting of handmade cookies, brownies, and cupcakes. All of those items were sold for $1 each, but the most sold items were donuts from Tim Hortons and Dunkin’ donuts, which were sold for $2 each. This bake sale was put on to raise money for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, with a total of more than $900. Dolly Parton founded this organization in 1995 and began her mission of giving books to children ages one through five free of charge.

The children receive 12 books a year, costing $26 for a yearly subscription of books, therefore the CHS Interact Club donated enough money for the upwards of 460 books amongst 35 children. These high schoolers are very proud of all of the work that they have done so far this school year, but this project is in the lead as the most successful project of the 2023 school year. While this is true, they are hoping to have at least one more upcoming event in the last few months of their semester.  Interactors Meghan and Emerey presented the donation to president Mary Sloan.
