MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - You're never too young to stand up for a cause.

A group of students from Martinsburg North Middle School were hard at work from Monday, May 4, through Friday, May 8, to raise money for the Berkeley County Humane Society.

Members of the Friends of Rachel group, named in honor of Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim of the Columbine High School shootings, collected donations.

The students wanted to help the shelter build a new cat room and a larger dog run. They also collected pet products such as food, towels and non-toxic cleaners.

During lunch, many students sat outside the cafeteria and collected donations in a jar. The students earned more than $20, which was donated to the humane society.

Also, Stephanie Miller, Kiki Frye, Jason Schonhans and Magan Buzzerd helped to collect supplies in the morning.

Some students volunteered for more then one day; some helped the entire week.
