Spangler Elementary School fourth graders Ouchithya Yadam, Ghugan Sudarvannan and Shivangsh Roy raised nearly $70 selling their old toys and books at a garage sale over the summer.
The funds raised were not for them, however. Instead, the thoughtful student trio donated to…Spangler Elementary School.
“One day during the summer, my son came and told me that he wants to do a garage sale to sell his old toys and other stuff in front of the house and wants to donate all the money to the school,” shared Ouchithya’s mother Srinivas Yadam.
Once Ouchithya’s mother agreed, he recruited two of his friends and arranged the garage sale over a summer weekend. Together, they raised $68.17, by selling their toys and books for as little as 50 cents apiece.
“It really surprised me that the younger kids think like this to give something back to the school and understanding how schools are helping them to grow,” Srinivas, the parent of Ouchithya, said.
Their kind act is the Spangler way!
