After fundraising for almost two months, the youngsters gathered about $2,647 for the Wadena Area Crisis Pregnancy Center. The young individuals raised the money by asking people to fill baby jars and bottles with loose change, during the church's Lent season.

The press release added that the volunteers took on the project as part of a service challenge they were given during a Youth in Theology and Ministry summer camp program they attended a year ago.
