Student leaders organized a Yard sale to give money to Katrina victims.

The students at Burnley Moran Elementary School gave $13,000 to the United Way. The money will go to help families relocation to our area from Louisiana and Mississippi.

"We have been hearing about hurricane Katrina in school so we decided that we would help them and do a yard sale," said 2nd grader Kia Garrett.

"Some of these people were in really bad need and we raised money to help them," said Monique Brown the 3rd grade student.

"The hurricane Katrina victims really needed some food and money so we decided to raise some money for them," said 3rd grader Emma Hendrix.

"We were trying to help out the community," said 3rd grader Will Jones.

The student government came up with the idea and organized the yard sale.
