Vermillion sixth graders donate to the Salvation Army Patriotism was shining bright at Vermillion Middle School as the sixth grade students presented a check for $500 to Vermillion school teacher, Brett Johnson.
The check was delivered personally to the Salvation Army in New York City by Johnson, who spent four days working in New York City at ground zero.
The money was raised as part of the annual sixth grade fund raiser. The students and teachers thank those in the community that gave to the fund raiser. In addition to the money sent to the Salvation Army, the funds raised will be used for field trips, special activities, projects, and extra supplies.
Salvation Army Incident Commander, Major George Polarek, wrote to the sixth graders saying, "God bless you for your kindness and generosity that remind us all that we are not alone!"
