Students make bracelets to aid tornado victims
Fourth graders spend hours making, selling bracelets
Students at a suburban Atlanta elementary school are making bracelets for classmates in an effort to help tornado victims in northwest Georgia.
The effort at Davis Elementary School in Cobb County is aimed at helping tornado victims in the neighboring county of Bartow.
The Marietta Daily Journal reports that students recently lined up to buy the bracelets made by fourth-graders in Bonnie Popienko's class.
Each morning this week, the children have been selling bracelets they made for 25 to 50 cents each.
The sales benefit victims of the Jan. 30 tornado that hit Adairsville in Bartow County, leaving one person dead.
Popienko said many of her 30 students have spent between 25 and 30 hours before and after school making and selling the bracelets.
