*No Door to Door Collections-Please respond

*Please respond immediately if you know who this person may be.*

-Sunday night after dark, November 4th, there is a report of a high school aged male going door to door in Key West on Seidenberg collecting money for the KWHS Band.

We do not condone door-to-door collection of money and this was reported as being suspicious. Please let me know immediately if you know who this person may be and if they are a member of the band.

If you are seeking sponsorships, please do so from businesses or neighbors that you know. All sponsorships donations must be collected as a Check made out to "Key West High School". These measures help keep everyone safe and prevent fraud.
