Fresno students raise funds for tsunami victims

FRESNO, Calif.

Sixth-graders Jessica Delao and Laura Cruz presented the American Red Cross with the check at a Lane Elementary School rally Friday morning. The two organized a fundraising drive to benefit victims of the deadly earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

The students set a goal of $1,000, and more than doubled it.

The money will go toward providing food, water and blankets to displaced Japanese residents.
