Three children, Justin and Katie Johnston and their cousin Aaron Preller, raised money to purchase canned goods and other items to donate to The Salvation Army in Leavenworth. They sent cards to family and friends, who provided donations for the project. Pictured are Aaron, Katie and Justin.
The children raised more than $600 for the project. Capt. Rick Hamelund with The Salvation Army said the donated items will be distributed to people who are struggling to make ends meet and need food assistance.
Aaron did a similar project two years ago.
