EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WYTV) – Students at an elementary school in East Liverpool raised $1,920 for Australian relief efforts.
The money is going to Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.
The kids raised money by collecting pennies from January 14-24.
A ceremony was held Thursday afternoon at North Elementary School to recognize the students for their efforts.
First-graders got to test drive boomerangs, learned about the Australian flag and ate cupcakes during the Australian-themed party.
They also received a personalized message from the Australia Zoo, thanking them for their fundraising efforts.
