Crothersville Elementary Raises Over $3,000 For Haitian Earthquake Relief

Crothersville Elementary students and teachers only looked like they slept late and hurried to school last Friday. Actually, the elementary, dressed in pajamas and robes, took part in a fund-raiser to help Haiti earthquake victims.
Elementary student Brady Riley came up with the idea that students and teachers could pay a dollar to wear their PJ’s to school for the fund-raiser. And he learned that nearby Pepsi Cola would match dollar for dollar the money raised by the local group.
