"School Safety Wish List" Program Presents Cash Donation to Seeley-Swan High School

Susan Campbell Reneau, a founder of the "School Safety Wish List" program, presented a $500 cash donation to Seeley-Swan High School on Wednesday, July 25 at the high school in Seeley Lake.

Tony Gallegos, principal of Seeley-Swan High School, was on hand to receive the donation.

The donation represents a collection of various cash gifts made throughout the past year to the "School Safety Wish List" account at First Security Bank in Missoula. The account was established in 1999 by a group of community members who wanted to raise money for safety-related items that weren't being funded in the general school budget.

Each summer Reneau takes all but $10 in the account and gives it to a school to be used to purchase safety-related equipment or materials. Reneau presented a $600 check in the spring of 2000 to Sentinel High School, which was used to purchase a digital camera to photograph school vandalism and other crime.

Donations to the "School Safety Wish List" account can be made at any First Security Bank branch in Missoula - checks should be made out to "School Safety Wish List." To receive an acknowledgement of your donation, please send the donation to Susan Campbell Reneau at 5425 Skyway Drive, Missoula MT 59804, and she will deposit the check and mail a thank you.
