Haiti Relief - One Piggy Bank at a time!

Two Kingswood students showed a lot of compassion last week. Upon hearing about the many needs of the people in Haiti, our school started collecting funds to donate. Liam and Sonya, both Lower Elementary students, took this to heart. They went home, emptied their ENTIRE "piggy bank" savings, and brought in their money to donate. We are so proud of you two for showing such an act of kindness!

When asked why they chose to donate all the money they had in their "piggy banks", as opposed to some of it, they replied:

"I really wanted to help because the houses are all torn down." ~Sonya

"I wanted to feel good for Haiti. Now lots of people can buy the supplies they need."~Liam
