Stuff the Cart

If you had 90 seconds to grab as many groceries as possible do you know what you’d pick up?

June Wilson, the winner of the Mid-East Career and Technology School’s 90 second shopping spree filled her cart with $197.97 worth of coffee, ham ground beef and other items at Pick ‘N Save, Monday morning. Her strategy was to simply fill the cart.

"I just wanted to pick some of the stuff that is expensive that I don’t always get because of the price," explained Wilson.

Wilson won the Mid-East Spree by purchasing a raffle ticket. The school sold the them in hopes of raising funds to create scholarships for adults looking to go back to school.

The hope is to continue fundraising in order to raise $100,000 over the next five years.

"We want to work with businesses, our vendors and community minded people who really care about getting our adults back to work in our community," said Rob Guentter the director of adult education at mid-east. "We provide that type of training that can very quickly get people up to speed and back to work."

The shopping spree raffle brought in $3,000 for the scholarship fund.
