Preschoolers march for charity

By

Preschoolers from the Santa Fe College Little School spent their morning raising money for March of Dimes. The children walked through the Santa Fe campus with buckets collecting donations for an hour. Santa Fe Little School Director Karen Bennett says this mini-walk is just the beginning.

“Our specific march today is one small piece of what the college is doing as a whole for the March of Dimes. We have many events planned, this is the first, and our goal is to raise $12,000 across the college,” she says.

Bennett adds the college will also be participating in the National Walk America Fundraiser on March 26th.
