Students to help tsunami victims in Southeast Asia

Drew Intermediate fifth grade students are currently trying to gather 3,000 units of bottled water for Southeast Asia tsunami victims, their teacher Janie Wilkins said Tuesday.

The project began three weeks ago and Wilkins said the response has been fair.

Wikins said the students are doing this as part of their curriculum to take part in community service education.

“It gives the fifth graders an opportunity to give back,” Wilkins said. “We were trying to find someone in need.”

You may drop off your unopened bottled water in front of the school Monday through Friday. Wilkins said she designates students to pick up dropoffs each day.

The donations continue until the end of the month at the school.
