WEST AKRON — St. Sebastian Parish School students participated in Akron Children’s Hospital 15th Annual Have a Heart, Do Your Part fundraiser again this year.

Sixth-grade teacher Mike McDonald, who organized all the “Change Bandits,” had a goal for the school to raise $500. That was what the school collected last year. But this year, students brought in more than $900 in change.

The students were given a time period of two weeks to bring in their change, but with all the days off of school because of the cold weather, the students had just five days.
