With dawn still nearly two hours away, Robert Foshee's student leadership class braved a windy early morning to stake out two corners near the campus of Fresno Christian. For the 11th year in a row, service on this morning meant an abbreviated night of sleep, a Starbucks run at 4 a.m. and yelling for donations until second period began at 9 a.m.
The reason? Kids Day 2012: a benefit for Children's Hospital Central California.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of The Fresno Bee's locally-supported Kids Day. Officially starting at 5:30 a.m., multiple schools, companies and organizations annually station themselves around the Fresno/Clovis area to sell a special edition of the newspaper for $1. A partnership between The Fresno Bee, KFSN ABC 30 and Children's Hospital is responsible for making the event possible.
FC has been participating in Kids Day for the past 10 years. Bible teacher Robert Foshee led Student Leadership to the intersections of Cedar and Alluvial and Maple and Alluvial, arriving at 4 a.m. to claim the corners for the school.
Additionally, 23 members of The Feather staff co-operated with leadership in order to help peddle papers. According to Foshee, the opportunity to combine different groups allows the school theme to be active within the FC community.
