To help students at a school in Texas destroyed by storms, the Colden Elementary School’s Student Council started a fundraiser.

Students raised $115 for the Donald T. Shields Elementary School in Red Oak, Texas. They created and sold more than 200 hand-drawn buttons with a Valentine’s Day theme. All the pins sold in four days at the school in the Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District.

Shondra Jones, the Shields school’s principal, emailed a thank-you message to the students.

Also, the Holland Kiwanis Club is seeking donations of used, but usable, boots, sneakers and shoes. Donations for those in need will be distributed around the world.

To donate, contact any Kiwanis member, or drop donations off in the barrels located in the Pearl Street Lobby at Holland High School or in the main entrance of Harold O. Brumsted Elementary School. Donations will be accepted through March 31. For more information, call Tara at 983-4533 or Lori at 537-2340.
