KIMT NEWS 3 – Area teens are coming together to raise money for people who need it.

Teens in Clear Lake make up “Project Hope.”

On Sunday, they had a rummage sale to raise money for homeless shelters in North Iowa. All of the items they sold were donated from community members.

These young organizers hope their actions not only make a difference, but send a message.

“Giving hope to everyone,” Alaina Dodd, a freshman at Clear Lake, said, “and trying to inspire people to do more in their community, help out.”

If you missed the sale, they’ll be having it again on Sat., May 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the old Gift World store in Southbridge Mall.
