Delegate Rob Bell took a break from Richmond Monday morning to raise funds.

The delegate visited Ruckersville Elementary School to help kick off the school's fundraising drive.

The donations will be used to help rebuild a Mississippi school destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

The kids say they are glad to help.

"I just felt they needed more than just nothing at all," said Abigail Tibbetts, a 5th-grader who donated several items.

This is the second fundraiser Ruckersville Elementary School has held for the Mississippi school.
