School raising money for gym improvements

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- Over the past three decades there have been thousands of students who played hundreds of games on the gym floor at White Pine School.

Now, that floor is deteriorating to the point where it could become unsafe for students, but to get a new one it will cost the school up to 80,000 dollars.

The White Pine School PTO is hoping to raise that money to give students a new floor. They're hosting a craft fair.

On Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., over 70 vendors will fill White Pine School with crafts, free kid’s activities, Mother’s Day gifts, children’s gifts, home décor, and more. There will also be a basket auction, food trucks on site, and character appearances for photo opportunities with children.
