Woonsocket Students Raise $14,000 For Sister School In Zambia

BOSTON (CBS) – Students at Woonsocket’s Mount Saint Charles Academy have a lot to be thankful for.

They raised $14,000 to give to their sister school in Zambia.

The Shitima School in Zambia is in an area of town so poor, that most only get one meal a day if they’re lucky.

Orphans live on the street and eat out of trash cans.

The money the Rhode Island kids raised will provide food, clothes and education.
