Some Charlottesville students are putting their two cents in, literally, when it comes to the hurricane relief effort. After Hurricane Katrina hit, students on bus number 713 decided they wanted to pitch in.

For the past two weeks they've been dropping their change into two water jugs on the bus. The students attend Charlottesville High, Walker-Upper and Johnson elementary schools.

"They were so excited, they just wanted to help and they really didn't know how, but this is what they did and they did a very good job," said bus driver Glenetta Smith.

The students think they've collected about $100 so far. The money will be donated to the Red Cross.
