Helping others

Robinson Elementary students money in a school-wide effort to help support Baby Sophie, the granddaughter of Robinson fifth grade teacher Ruth Anne Smith. Sophie,was born in South Korea, 10 weeks early and spent the next 10 weeks in an NICU unit. Her medical bills were much more than the insurance would pay. There are no payment plans there and Sophie’s bill must be paid in full before the family can return to the United States. Fundraising efforts are ongoing. Sophie's parents have lived in South Korea for 3 years where her mom is an ESL teacher. The family plans to return to the United States, and to their south central Kansas home, in the spring of 2013. The students raised over $570.
