THE BRONX - The current crisis in Haiti has struck close to home for students at St. Raymond's High School.

Students are banding together to raise funds for Haiti relief. Students are giving through old and new school means - some dropping change in donation bins, others texting donations to charities like Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti.

"I want to show that we can contribute all the same," says student Christopher Gooding, who has family in Port Au Prince.
