St. Francis Students Raise $2000 for Hurricane Victims

St. Francis Students Raise $2000 for Hurricane Victims

Last week, students at St. Francis Solano School played Coin Wars in their homeroom classes to raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey. In just 2 days, students raised $1,467.51. Some students brought coins from their own piggy banks and others did extra chores at home to earn their donated coins. Classes competed to see which grade could raise the most money. Additional anonymous donations came in from the school community bringing the total amount raised to $2000!
