Student supports school programs with money raised through business

Through the Critts Cares program, a shoe company that encourages and supports creative programs for children, Carter Waugh, student and business owner of Bear Branch Intermediate, donated $365 to the school.

“I donated because I want to give back to my community because it’s really important to me,” he said. “Critts for All Critters is for everyone. I think it’s important to believe in yourself and follow your dreams.

Carter owns Critts, LLC, which donates $2 to schools for every pair of shoes sold.
