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

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.
