KAUKAUNA, WI (WTAQ) - Over $100,000 to build a Habitat for Humanity house in Kaukauna was raised by a group of students from seven area high schools.
In just a few months, the students from Appleton North, East and West high schools, along with students from Kimberly, Kaukauna, Neenah and St. Mary Central raised the funds.
Some Neenah High School students approached Habitat for Humanity with the idea to build a home. The students needed to raise $75,000. Students from the other schools signed up quickly to join the project. The money was raised from a variety of fundraisers.
On Monday, the students helped out at the building site by putting together a shed for Bee and Gaosheng Thao, who are the new owners of the home.
