Roanoke Elementary School fifth-graders (front row, from left) Carter Mertz, Kelly Stech, Mary Young, Dairian Goelz, Makayla Dumato and Autumn Anderson pose with some of the items their class collected to send to Hosanna House, a home for abused and neglected children in Belize. With them are Paul Roth (left), school principal, and parent Pamela Anderson (right). The socks, bandages, stickers, toys and other supplies will be delivered to Hosanna House over the holidays by a Roanoke family. The collection was the first social action project of the year for the class.
