Traverse City High School Students Sell Blankets To Give Back To Community

A class of high school students started a Junior Achievement company and are giving back to the community.

The "How to Start a Business" class at Traverse City Central has created Lakeside Leisure.

They are selling large water-resistant beach blankets.

$1 from each product sold will go to Michael’s Place, which is a nonprofit that offers support for children and families who are grieving.

While starting a business that gives back, students are learning all sorts of life long skills.

 “People have experienced managing other people, cooperating and collaborating and all working towards the goal of making the company successful,” says Lakeside Leisure President, Noah Trigaud. “It’s a lot of really good hands on information and practical stuff that’s really great for education and teaches us the kind of stuff you don’t get from textbooks.”

Students are selling the blankets until May 13.

The blanket also comes with coupons from local businesses.
