Stevens Middle School Students help build a well in Africa

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- Students at Stevens Middle School in Pasco have raised money to help build a well in Africa.

Over the years, 7th graders in Miss Connolly's class learned about the lack of clean water in some countries. Three years ago, her students started piling up their pennies.

This year's class had a huge carwash and bake-sale last weekend that pushed them past their goal. They gathered more than $4,000.

That money has been donated to the Blood Water Mission which is building 1,000 wells in Africa.
