FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A student-run company is selling the "Fairfield Crewneck" to show off some town pride while raising money for a charity that feeds and houses the poor called Operation Hope.
The shirt sells for $30, and the students running the business are Warde High School students in the Junior Achievement organization.
Its programs help teens learn about becoming humanitarians while developing their marketing and sales skills and how to succeed as entrepreneurs, said student Marcel Parsons, Vice President of Public Relations for the business.
"The program helps us learn what it takes to be in the workforce and about entrepreneurship and financial literacy," he told Daily Voice.
"We are donating $300 to Operation Hope because it is an organization that helps the community in need. It works to provide food, affordable housing, shelter, and community kitchens. This impacts so many people in our area, and we would love to help those giving back," Parsons said.
Macwear Athletics of Southport manufactured the shirts, he said.
