GR8 Job: Kennett school kids helping animals

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - A group of Kennett South Elementary School students is working to put their community before themselves.

The 3rd graders in Paige Crafton's class have worked all school year raising money for the Kennett Humane Department.

The class has held a lemonade sale, collected bottle tops for change, and hosted many fundraisers.

The money already raised have saved the lives of abused and neglected animals.

"It just make us feel good when we do good things because that's what Jesus would do," said one of the students.

So far the students have raised over $900 and have pictures of the animals they have saved displayed in their classroom.
