Etowah High School senior Garrett Ruslin wanted his Senior Project to make a difference in the community, and he succeeded by raising $850 to help local children in need.

Garrett created limited-edition Etowah High School T-shirts and sweatshirts and sold them at school and online, with all of the profits benefiting the school’s “Shop With An Eagle” program. The program provides underprivileged children in the community with the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts.

“I know there are many children in the world, some right here in our community, that cannot celebrate Christmas with the same excitement that many do,” Garrett said. “It really makes me sad, so I wanted to do something to help. I immediately knew that I wanted to partner with ‘Shop With An Eagle’ for my Senior Project.”

Garrett said he is looking forward to Dec. 2 when the children will get to “Shop With An Eagle”, now with $850 more available thanks to his project’s success.

“That is going to be a wonderful day for them that will lead to a great holiday,” he said.
