Fifth graders at Finn Academy here in Elmira hosted a spaghetti dinner fundraiser at the Ernie Davis community center gym.
The goal of the fundraiser to raise money for emergency supply kits for those in need.
Their teacher says she is proud of her students.
“The kids are so excited to be helping out, we have been helping out for the office of the aging and we learned about the different disasters and things like that,” said Finn Academy Fifth Grade teacher Emily Presser.
“So it’s great to have people come together and members of the Finn community and Elmira community to come together to really support our scholars and support our community,” added Presser.
Presser said she is overwhelmed by the showing of support within the community and looks forward to more events like these.
