Richardson Elementary students deliver their donations to the Red Cross.
Students at Richardson Elementary have raised funds for relief efforts in northeast Japan, where an 8.9-magnitude earthquake that hit March 11 was followed by a 33-ft. tsunami, leaving the region devastated. Ryan Freeman, 9, and a few of his fourth-grade classmates learned about the humanitarian crisis in math class. “I said I wanted to help.
