Horizon Science Academy Toledo starts penny war to raise funds for Harvey relief

Horizon Science Academy Toledo students have organized a school-wide penny war to support relief efforts for Harvey victims.

Student ambassadors and the robotics team helped organize the event and produced fliers, posters and a commercial to advertise the fundraiser.

"Lots of people have been affected not only in Texas, but also at home," said Student Ambassador Jersey McClendon. "People here know people that lived in Texas or have families and whatnot. A lot of people are just touched by the moment."

"With yesterday's totals around 200 and I'm seeing more than we had yesterday so I imagine that number will double today," said Community Engagement Coordinator Nicholas McClellan.

Students will continue fundraising for four more days.
