THE BRONX - Archbishop Timothy Dolan visited students at Saint Raymond's Elementary school in The Bronx Monday after they raised $15,000 in four days for victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
The students raised more than five times the amount they had originally expected. Archbishop Dolan accepted the check after praising the students' hard work.
Saint Raymond's two high schools and the parish also raised $15,000 combined. The $30,000 in donations will go to Catholic Relief Services, a non-profit with 300 staffers who are currently providing services in Haiti.
