The students at Oak Knoll Elementary in Menlo Park, California were moved to do something to help those affected by the hurricanes and fires. They wanted to donate to the Red Cross which helped people in both disasters. They accomplished their goals by doing chores at home to earn change.  They cleaned windows, vacuumed the house, washed the car and more. As a school, Oak Knoll earned over $2,600!  Hanna Malik from the Red Cross came to collect the money from Counselor Nicole Scott and Principal Kristen Gracia.

The classrooms of Ms. Zeiser, Ms. Bulkin, and Ms. Austin (also called the ABZ mulitage class) at Oak Knoll Elementary in Menlo Park, Ca.  donated $900 to The Houston ASPCA. Ms. Zeiser writes that she  "would like to recognize my students who put in extraordinary work, time, and kindness to make that donation possible. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, my students were consumed with anxiety about their human and animal friends in Houston. We discussed what we could do from "all the way over here in California." After a robust conversation about kindness in action, the students volunteered to host bake sales, lemonade stands, and do extra chores to earn money for Harvey victims. In the following weeks, I was overwhelmed with pride as the students shared their efforts and triumphs while rallying for the cause. As a group, we decided that our donation would be best sent to the Houston ASPCA you for the amazing work they do to serve our animal friends!"      A
