Concerned kids from in and around West Milford conducted a car wash on Saturday, September 10 in the parking lot of the Upper Greenwood Lake Volunteer Ambulance Corps to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Irene Fedyshyn, a fourth grader organized a group of kids on an impromptu basis hoping to do something to help. They raised $766, which is being donated to the American Red Cross. Thanks to Lowes Home Center's Matching Fund, their effort is worth twice as much — making the total donation $1,532. Participants included Christal Torres, Ciara Torres, Tyler Schrober, Mathew Schrober, Daniel Kelly, George Kelly, Stephanie Paul, Maria Foley, Samantha Mays, Jacy DiZenzo, Kylie DiZenzo, Melissa Peters, Tiffany Genader, James Perratta, Catherine Sciarra, Lucas Zenser, Mateo Zenser, Callie Schultz, Lindsey Perez and some helpful adults.
