Local Students Donate Clothes and Nearly $4,000 to Those in Need Overseas

Posted: Updated:

Some local students are changing lives overseas. Students at St. Mary's School in Lake Leelanau have been collecting clothing and money for kids in India and Afghanistan for nearly a year.

Months ago, Retired Air Force Veteran, Colonel Victor Kuchar, spoke to the students about the poor living conditions people experience overseas. The students raised nearly $4,000. Today, Colonel Kuchar came back to show them how their effort helped build a women's shelter.
