Bubb teacher Adria Flores reported that the elementary students have donated over $1500 to the Red Cross after only four days of fundraising. She credited the fifth graders for spearheading the campaign and collecting the money.
Mountain View high students have raised over $700 to donate to relief efforts in Haiti, and will continue their campaign Tuesday evening at the JV and Varsity boys basketball games against Los Altos High School.
Ambika Bist, president of the MVHS Red Cross Club, said the two schools were hoping to spark some friendly competition, to see who could raise the most money at the game. All the monies collected, she said, would go to the MVHS Haitian Relief Fund.
Tuesday's games will take place at Mountain View High School, 3535 Truman Ave. JV plays at 5:30 p.m., Varsity at 7 p.m.
Los Altos high students continue to collect money for One Dollar For Life, a non-profit started at the school. For more information visit www.odfl.org.
