Holmes Elementary Girls Help Kids Throughout San Diego

Holmes

Girl Scouts from Holmes Elementary School joined more than 1,600 volunteers recently by participating in Kids’ News Day. The scouts organized the annual fund-raising event in front of their Clairemont neighborhood school and got up early to sell a special edition of the U-T San Diego before the start of school.

The girls’ efforts raised $200 for Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego.

Now in its 23rd year, Kids’ News Day is made possible through a special partnership of U-T San Diego, NBC 7 San Diego and Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary. One day each year, local celebrities, firefighters, police officers, community groups, companies, schools and Rady employees and volunteers sell special editions of the newspaper for $1. Every dollar raised goes to Rady Children’s Hospital to fund direct patient care and community education.
