Four fifth-grade students from Windermere Elementary School in the Amherst School District raised over $500 for the American Red Cross general disaster relief fund by participating in a "readathon."
Three students from Heather Rogers’ class and one student from Sara Mazurek’s class combined to read over 40 books in four weeks. The students received pledges from family, friends and neighbors to help raise money to support victims from the recent hurricanes that hit Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
Molly Sievenpiper, Executive Coordinator of the American Red Cross in Buffalo, came to Windermere on Monday to thank the four students and present them certificates.
