Several sixth graders in Reston wanted to do something to help families affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma, and thought a bake sale would be a good way to do it. They printed fliers and distributed them around the neighborhood, then spent two days making treats offering them on sale last weekend. The outpouring of support from the neighborhood was significant, enough for the girls to raise $781. The money will all be donated to the United Way of Central Oklahoma.

One of the girls, Hannah Douglas, said: "I'm really happy we earned all this money for the people who needed help in Oklahoma. It was actually a lot of fun doing this with my friends, and all our friends and neighbors were very generous."
