Raising $34,000 to make sure students would receive milk during lunch and snack time at school, Haley Dellaneva, a 16-year-old from Moorehead, Minn., has been making a difference in her community for the past seven years.
Delleneva first started raising money when she was in fourth grade after noticing how some of her classmates could not pay for milk while at school. Now, the money is used to pay for milk for kindergarteners through 5thgraders in Moorhead along with Fargo, N.D. and West Fargo school districts.
Working with volunteer motorcycle runs during the summer, Dellaneva has raised $34,000 for F-M metro schools just this year. Giving Hearts Day, associated with the Impact Foundation, is matching Dellaneva’s donation, doubling the money she has raised.
"It started with my mom and dad and then my brother and my sister-in-law," Haley Dellaneva said in an interview with WDAY News. "Now everybody else is coming in and it's making a big difference."
