18,000 Minnesota students celebrate 'We Day'

 


Jordan Flaherty was among the Farmington High School students who raised $10,000 last year to build a school — and buy goats — for a village in Kenya.

Tiffany Bertek was part of a group from Alexandria Area High School that helped organize a coat drive for local students, sent Christmas toys to needy children, and raised funds to support a “We Scare Hunger” campaign.

They were among 18,000 enthusiastic students who jammed the Xcel Energy Center Tuesday for what has become an annual day of celebrating service learning and giving, called We Day.
