HERMON, Maine — Students from the Hermon High School Key Club will be selling YUDA bands, bracelets created by men and woman from Third World countries, to pay for a child’s education for three years. The bands are handmade and create jobs for many people and send thousands of children to school every year.

The Hermon Key Clubbers will be selling the bands May 13-24 with hopes to pay for a child’s education for three years. The young boy’s name is Edison, he is 12 years old and entering seventh grade in Ecuador. One hundred seventy five bands pay for one year of education, and each band costs $7. Hermon’s goal is to sell 525 bracelets.

The club is seeking sponsors to help reduce the cost of the bands, and spread the word to reach as many people as possible.
