HOLCOMB, Kan. (KSNW) – The Holcomb School District is raising money to help those affected by the wildfires in Australia. The students say this is the least they can do in a dire time of need.
“It’s kinda fun to help people that you don’t even know and help animals,” said fifth-grader Jack Myers.
“I kinda feel proud because we’re helping that and animals that need help that are in danger,” said fifth-grader Jorge Perez Barajas
“I also hope they can help people that got their house burnt down and help them rebuild them,” said fifth-grader Yarazeth Murguia.
“It’s great and there are a lot of people that really care about it,” said a senior.
Nearly every student in Holcomb is doing what they can to help people across the world.
“I come from an ag background with my family, so it’s hitting home, a lot of heartstrings. So this is a good way for us to do what we can from you know a few thousand miles away,” said Holcomb High School teacher Rance Schreibvogel.
The elementary school, raising more than $600 in four days, plans to send its money to Wildlife Warriors. The high school hopes to donate its funds to firefighters.
