Abi Smith, third grade, and Ali Smith, kindergarten, raised $771 at North Webster Elementary School just before school was out to help aid American Red Cross efforts in the disaster response in Oklahoma. The girls’ mother, Erin, called the Kosciusko office to find out ways the girls could help since they’d expressed an interest in doing something to help the victims of tornados in Oklahoma.
Helping others in a time of need is the primary focus of various humanitarian projects the students, staff and families at North Webster Elementary School frequently take on. Efforts earlier in the school year benefited Sandy Hook victims. The girls are the daughters of Erin and Gary Smith. The donation project was overseen by them as well as Christie Holst, school counselor at North Webster Elementary School.
The girls are very close to a target of $1,000 in order to become a Red Cross Everyday Hero. The duo plans to continue working toward their goal of $1,000 once the school year resumes. Anyone can be a Hero – all it takes is a good bit of effort to help raise or give $1,000.00.
