Students raise money for tsunami relief
South Routt Elementary School students in Yampa recently completed a successful collection drive for tsunami victims. During three weeks, students collected clothing and non-perishable food items to contribute to the relief effort. Through their efforts, the students were able to fill 42 boxes with goods for victims of the devastating natural disaster.
"The students not only got to help people from a far away distance, but they got to have the feeling of what is truly important -- thinking of others when they are in need," South Routt physical education teacher Artie Weber said.
Christian Heritage helps
Like students at South Routt Elementary School, students at Steamboat Springs' Christian Heritage School also held a drive to contribute to the relief efforts for tsunami victims.
The school's Tsunami Relief Coin Drive raised a total of $2,595.85. The drive paired elementary grade levels with secondary grade levels in a contest for who could raise the most money. The team of fourth-graders and 11th graders won the contest, collecting $749.23. Second place went to the team of fifth-graders and 12th graders, which raised $410.60.
The school's student council matched the amount raised by the winning team. The idea for a coin drive came from student council president Rebecca Timmerman, who also made the collection containers for each team.
All money raised will be given to World Vision's tsunami relief fund.
