The Edison Elementary School community came together to raise more than $900 for the 33rd Annual Jerry Starr Ken-Ton Schools' SleepOut through the school's third annual "Links 4 Love" initiative.
Children and staff bought paper links for 25 cents each, which were then used to make colorful paper chains. Classrooms competed to see which could create the longest paper chain and then hung them outside their rooms.
At the end of the week, all chains were collected, linked together, and hung up in the front foyer to show the Edison Elementary students the wonderful things that can happen when everyone "links" together to help others.
This is Edison's third year raising money for the SleepOut. Click here to learn more about the event which takes place Friday, Feb. 7:
