Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) For several days last week, students at Lighthouse participated in community service.
They did everything from clean city parks to sing at care centers.
But on friday, the group culminated their efforts with "Cow Bucks for Elias."
Elias is a child living in Kenya that Lighthouse sponsors and he had a special request.
"He has asked that we raise money to give him a cow for him and his family for sustainability. And so the kids are out here earning cow bucks, every lap they do, they will get a buck," explains Lighthouse Elementary Principal, Allison Hamilton.
A member of the community also would match whatever the kids brought in from Cow Bucks Day.
