Eighth-grade students from St. Pius X/St. Leo School in Omaha organized a special dress down day Feb. 20 to raise awareness and funds for refugees of Sudan.

The event raised $952. The Save Darfur Coalition received $100 for international efforts and Project Welcome received $852.

The students also welcomed Sister Joan Mueller, OSC, of Project Welcome, who talked to them about her program that aids local Sudanese refugees, most of whom are children.
