VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) _ A group of students from Nepal at the University of South Dakota is raising money for victims of the recent earthquake that has killed more than 6,000 and injured almost 14,000 people.
The Nepalese students at the Vermillion school sent out an announcement Thursday notifying the public that they’re collecting money to give to the Red Cross.
The students have set up donation boxes at the school and partnered with a school coffee shop to donate 50 cents for every large espresso drink it sells. They will also be holding bake sales until next Tuesday.
People from around the country have been stepping to help the people of Nepal, which has been overwhelmed by death and destruction since the 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Saturday.
