PETERSBURG, Va. (WTVR) – When Walnut Hill Elementary school second grader Paris Mason saw the damage Hurricane Sandy brought to the Northeast, she took action.

Mason, with the approval of her principal, started the “Kids Helping Kids” project and organized a coin drive for storm victims. Classmates and school staff donated change for the cause.

Over the last two months, Mason helped raise $1,000 for children impacted by the storm. The school will donate the money to the American Red Cross tomorrow.
