School Kids Collect Pennies for Tornado Victims

RIEGELWOOD -- Some school kids are helping rebuild the spirits of the Riegelwood tornado victims.

Tuesday, the children at Murrayville Elementary School in Wilmington presented three families at Acme-Delco Elementary School with holiday baskets. They're filled with money and gift cards.

Murrayville's students raised the money simply by collecting pennies. Local businesses also pitched in to help the families.
