Our local zoo has a small train that travels through the park and has been a part of our zoo and community for many years. We recently learned that our train was in need of some major repairs and if not repaired, we would lose the little train forever! The Do Something Club at Logan Avenue Elementary School decided to help with the community-wide effort to save the train by hosting a "Penny Drive" in our school. To take it one step further, we got the other elementary schools in our community involved as well! Each school chose to do it a little bit differently but the result was the same. We were able to collect close to $5,000! The amount needed for the train's repairs was over $20,000 and with the community's help as well as the help from the students in our schools, we were able to surpass that goal! The Do Something Club is very thankful for the support and participation of all the kids in Emporia!
