ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A group of students from Spoede Elementary School skipped their Halloween party to collect money.

Jessica Moore’s second-grade class was learning about Hurricane Matthew and wanted to do something to help.

Moore said, “That’s so important for kids to see that others may be impacted by some devastation, and how can we help them, even as second-graders.”

So, the group came up with the idea to sell hot chocolate.

“All the money that we get, we just wanted to donate it to a school in Haiti since it’s a poor country. It’s just really poor and the fact that Hurricane Matthew came stumbling down there is just sad, so we wanna do that,” student Darron Bell said.

The students decided to hold their hot chocolate sale on Halloween because there would be a lot of parents around helping with classroom parties.

At the end of the day, the students raised $310.
