Liberty Pines Students "Lend a Hand" to Japan

Liberty Pines Students "Lend a Hand" to Japan

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Students at Liberty Pines Academy  raised more than $2,200 this week through their "Lend a Hand to Japan" campaign.

They decided to hold the donation drive after learning of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in the country.

"It's really hitting home," explained Assistant Principal, Dr. Brian Schoonover. "We live on the beaches here in St. Augustine and you see all these beaches, communities getting washed away.  So I really think the students here at Liberty Pines can relate."

Children who donated money decorated a paper handprint with their name on it, which was then placed on a wall in the school's main hallway. 

The student council held an ice cream social this afternoon and decided to donate all the proceeds from that event to the Japan fund as well.

The school will give all of the money collected to the American Red Cross for their relief efforts in Japan.
