EAGLE – The students at Brush Creek Elementary are holding a fund-raiser for victims of the devastating tsunami, which occurred on Dec. 26. More than 5 million people have been affected and it is estimated that it will take 20 years for them to fully recover.Students in Jackie Flyr’s and Tracy Barber’s fourth-grade writing classes have been researching how students can become philanthropists and provide support. Two students from each classroom have been asked to be representatives at the school. Those students will help by taking charge of the donation containers and encouraging their classmates to contribute. “We’ve made posters and are beginning to receive donations,” says fifth-grade class representative Hayley Beard. The fund-raiser will run through March 21. The school will work with Quarters From Kids to choose an organization that will directly benefit young victims.For more information, call 328-8930.
