Thunder Mountain Elementary kids donate fundraised money to family who lost their home in a fire
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A fire that broke out at a home near Thunder Mountain Empathy may have had the unexpected side effect of teaching kids about empathy. The school had organized a 5K color run intended to raise money for a playground, but the kids decided to instead donate more than $1,900 to the family who lost their home. The financial gift was presented on Thursday, and the family also benefitted from a fundraiser started by Bank of the West.
The family also received a $500 gift card from Wal-Mart.
