Baker Students Raise Money for Middle Schoolers in West

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Students at Baker Middle School tried to help fellow middle schoolers in the town of West, Texas, by raising money. They've raised $800 so far.

The Baker students said it has really opened their eyes knowing that some kids their age have lost so much.

"If our school got blown up in a random explosion like that, it would be devastating," eighth-grader Calista Schauer said. "So it feels good to be able to help them."

The kids also raised the money as part of National Pay It Forward Day.
