West Richland 4th grader donates his allowance to homeless

Posted: Updated:


WEST RICHLAND, Wash. --  Most fourth graders save their allowance to buy video games or a new bicycle, but not Devin Morasch.

The nine year old at William Wiley Elementary School in West Richland has been saving his money since the beginning of summer so he could help the homeless by donating to the Union Gospel Mission in Pasco.

The fourth grader managed to collect, $106.42.  "I got it from chores, jobs, lemonade stands, garage sales," says Morasch.  "God says to treat your neighbors the way you want to be treated, and a bad coincidence could have happened in their life and then they ended up on the street," says the fourth grader.

This is the second year Morasch has raised money for the homeless and donated it to Raise Your Tents, an event the Central United Protestant Church puts on.  People camp out in tents and donate money to the Union Gospel Mission in Pasco.


Morasch and his mother plan on going to the Union Gospel Mission in Pasco for the first time this week.
