Coin drive at Lincoln Elementary for Haiti relief

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  Darline Connors is a five year old kindergartner at Lincoln Elementary.  She was adopted from Haiti last year.   It was her idea to start the school-wide coin drive.

The drive starts Friday and lasts two weeks.  Anyone can donate--students, teachers, parents, even you!

The whole idea came from Darline, something her teacher says is truly amazing.

"That is very big," says Christi Sorbel, kindergarten teacher at Lincoln.  "I was very proud of her.  It touched my heart, and I knew I had to do something."

"They're going to take it to the orphanage to help some people find food," adds Darline.

"Mom's going to buy formula with that money and all the things they need for the babies and the kids for the orphanage," explains Darline's sister, Katy.

If you want to help out, just stop by Lincoln Elementary in Kennewick.  All proceeds go to Haiti relief.
