SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – A group of fifth graders from Mountain View Elementary School in East Longmeadow are making a difference! After seeing all the destruction from the Oklahoma Tornado the kids wanted to help the victims. So they decided to raise money and collect clothes to donate to The Red Cross. The girls organized everything themselves from getting the word out to their classmates – to labeling the envelopes for the money collection and bringing in boxes to collect the clothes.
The drive end today, Friday and so far the girls have collected 12 bags of clothes.
