Elementary Students Donate To Relief Effort

A group of kids in Mineola are helping with the tsunami relief effort, in a big way.

At the weekly meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Mineola Tuesday, the kids donated a check for $2,914.23. The money represents a fund raising effort by the 5th graders. They're part of a group called K-Kids from Mineola Elementary School, a group sponsored by the Kiwanis Club."

"(Donating the money) makes me feel pretty good because we did it and had fun doing it and I'm going to think that they're going to enjoy having new homes and being able to live like they used to," said K-Kids member Laramie Lomanto.

The Kiwanis Club chipped in with a $1,000 donation of their own. They plan to present a check of $4,100 to Kiwanis International for tsunami relief.
