Letter to the editor: Ripton students grateful for aid

The fifth and sixth grade class at Ripton Elementary would like to thank everyone for their support with our efforts to raise money for a Honduran woman and daughter seeking asylum in Maine. We are thankful that the Addison Independent shared our cause with the community by running both an article and a photo during the time of our fundraiser. We know it helped us raise more money than we would have otherwise. Thanks to the amazing support from Ripton and other Addison County residents we were able to raise $770! Our class is also grateful for the opportunity we had to connect with Meg Young and learn about her experiences, and for the chance to interact directly with refugees seeking asylum in our country.
