A Valley Elementary school saw the need to help others and their effort means big bucks for the WAFF 48 Lee High School Memorial Fund.
"We know that we're doing something for our community," says one child.
Allie Thornton is a 4th Grader at Monrovia Elementary. She and her classmates have been working hard to raise the money.
"We've been raising money for the Snack Shack for the bus crash that happened," says Thornton.
"We've been raising money from the Snack Shack and the coin collection."
Fourth Grader Chelsea Robinson helps count the money.
The importance of empathy is something that teacher Caroline Wilson stresses in her classroom.
"I always like to express empathy for others, and teaching character ed, we do that on a daily basis so that our children are taught to give back to our community," says Wilson.
Smiling faces help count the money raised.
"It feels great. It feels like a fantastic job."
