A Staples High School club has raised $2,000 for Save The Children.

The school's Global Friendship Club sold and delivered more than 1,200 candy canes during its Candygrams drive in December, according to juniors Anya Rosen and Maddie Melnick

In addition to raising money for charitable causes, the club links Staples students with pen pals in countries such as Germany, Thailand, France and the United Arab of Emirates.
