Enterprise Elementary helps Hurricane Sandy victims
The student council at Enterprise Elementary School sponsored a coin drive to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.
From Nov. 15-19, the school raised $700 for the Red Cross to assist with relief efforts.
Enterprise fifth-grader Zachary Yoon, who is president of the student council, helped lead the coin drive. At a school assembly Nov. 27, Zachary was presented with a humanitarian award from Deputy Superintendent Mark Davidson.
"I'm really proud of our whole school," said Zachary, adding that the original goal was to raise $400.
In late October, Hurricane Sandy devastated the East Coast of the United States as well as the Caribbean. The storm damage is estimated at more than $70 billion. States such as New Jersey and New York were especially hit hard as hundreds of thousands of people lost their homes. To learn more about the recovery effort, click here.
