High Schools’ Mattress Fundraisers Support Athletes

Whether you support the Hillies or the Wildcats, buying a new mattress on Saturday, Jan. 21 can boost your team’s bottom line.

The Haverhill High School girls volleyball team and the Whittier Vo-Tech Athletic Boosters will run mattress sales from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at their respective schools.

Models of available mattresses will be on display at the HHS gym and in Whittier’s lobby.
