City Bank is donating $1,000 to Dunbar Middle School students and they're also challenging other businesses to do the same.
The donation came after City Bank learned 40 students had to cancel a spring break trip to New York City when their fundraising money disappeared. The teacher in charge of the fundraising project and the money, KaRee Copeland, resigned three days ago.
"I'm having to fill a lot of questions with the kids because they are upset. They don't understand why they aren't being able to do this. They don't understand where the money is," said Dr. Royce Avery, Dunbar Middle School Principal.
The district tells us there is no school investigation because the trip was not a school sponsored event. We were unable to contact Karee Copeland for comment.
