Codington Elementary ship donation up to Boston

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Some local students are doing their part to help the victims of the Boston bombings at last month's Boston Marathon.

Led by three of their classmates, the fifth graders at Codington Elementary presented Principal Budd Dingwall a check for over $800. The students raised the money in one week by asking for donations in their neighborhoods and at school.

"Character of this magnitude of these children without any adult prodding to come do this for Boston was truly remarkable and an example of what we try to instill in our children to care for others and serve others," said Dingwall.

All of the money will be donated to The One Fund Boston, which helps those most affected by the tragic events in Boston.
