Westwood Elementary raises over 4k for United Way

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. -

Westwood Elementary cowboys and girls have accomplished quite a feat.

The students raised more than $4,000 to donate to the United Way. The boys and girls only started collecting two weeks ago. Nearly every one of them, faculty and staff included, saved and added to the pot. Westwood students have helped the United Way ensure someone in need will get help too.

"So much has been done this year for the new Westwood and we felt it is within our responsibility to also give back to others" says Principal Renee Ellis.

Their hope is to hold another similar fundraiser in the future at Westwood.
