ANDOVER, Kan. (KAKE) -

Andover students are running a snack stand Monday to raise money for the Houston Food Bank in support of Hurricane Harvey victims.

The fifth-graders on Saturday raised $108 in about four hours and will operate the stand again from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday at Lakeside and Central (map below). 

Teacher Alicia Clopton Moss said in a Facebook post that a class project got the students talking about what they could do to help.

"They decided to do a drink/snack stand to support the Houston Food Bank."

The remaining food and drinks will be donated to the Andover Food Bank.

"These kiddos now know that no matter how old you are, you can still make a difference in the world."
