Cheer’s fundraiser started on Oct.14 and will end on Nov. 7. This fundraiser is replacing the annual mini cheer camps. 

The cheer team is selling garlands and wreaths this year in order to raise money for their UIL State competition. The fundraiser started on Oct.14 and will end on Nov. 7.

“This fundraiser means a lot to the Lovejoy cheer program,” senior spirit captain Caroline Dobbs said. “The funds we raise will help us as we compete in the 2021 State Cheer Competition and return to defend our 2020 state championship wins.”

There are a variety of sizes and styles that can be ordered. All items will be delivered within the first two weeks after Thanksgiving break. Items that will be locally distributed will come in earlier. 

“The prices range from $25 – $60 depending on what you order,” Dobbs said. “We’re hoping to have each cheerleader sell at least 10 wreaths.”

This fundraiser is replacing the annual mini cheer camps that the team has had in the past. 

“Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host our annual mini cheer camp,” senior co-captain Chloe Brown said. “Therefore, this fundraiser means so much to us and we would greatly appreciate[it] if people would support.”

While the fundraisers main purpose is to raise money for the competition, the team hopes that the student community will also benefit.

“This fundraiser not only helps the team, but it also helps us have funds to use on games and pep rallies to make them more enjoyable for the student body,” senior Avery Durham said.
