Region 8 students help raise money to help Haiti

BLOOMFIELD, MO (KAIT) – Some Bloomfield Elementary School students helped the Red Cross raise money to the people affected by the Haiti earthquake.

According to the Southeast Missouri Red Cross, the kids raise more than $4,000 in donations in just eight days.

Since the earthquake devastated the region, over 40 different organizations and groups throughout southeast Missouri have help raise money with the Red Cross relief 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.
