Trinity Merrill raises money for tornado relief


MERRILL (WAOW) - Merrill students cooked up a storm to raise money for tornado victims.

Students, staff and parents from Trinity Lutheran School pitched in by setting up camp outside starting at 7:00 this morning.

They sold brats, ice cream and baked goods for the cause.

It's an idea hatched by some of the 4th grade students.

Kathy Yahr/Trinity School Principal: "The 4th grade teacher said my students are going out at recess and planning a lemonade stand and they were taking their notebooks and trying to get everything organized.  So we decided to help them out a little bit and it turned into something really big."

Volunteers also drove students to local businesses and apartment complexes to deliver pre-ordered meals.

All the proceeds help the victims of last month's storm in Merrill.
