By Heartland News

BLOOMFIELD, MO (KFVS) - Bloomfield Elementary students help raise money for the people of Haiti.

In just eight days, the students collected more than $4000 worth of donations.

The students collected coin change and other donations from the Bloomfield community.

Since the earthquake struck, over 40 different organizations and groups, and thousands of individuals throughout southeast Missouri have sent in monetary donations for Red Cross relief in Haiti totaling more than $38,000.

The Red Cross says that number does not include all southeast Missourians who donated to the Red Cross disaster relief for Haiti through the internet, 1-800-REDCROSS, text messaging, or sending funds directly to the American Red Cross National Headquarters.
