Students from Kindergarten through sixth-grade at the L.B. Morris Elementary School in Jim Thorpe became interested in helping those in earthquake-damaged Haiti. They raised money in their individual homerooms over the course of about a month and a half.
Donated school supplies such as markers and pens were made available in each room and purchased by the students on a daily basis.
The profits from these sales totaled $830 and it was decided that all of these funds should go to the American Red Cross for Haiti relief.
