RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Pierrepont School has collected $3,150 to purchase farm animals for the children at St. Lawrence School in Migyera, Uganda, through ChangeALife Uganda and its FundsForFarming initiative.

Donations were made by students, parents and staff throughout March and April.

The Pierrepont students in each homeroom will now choose the animals they have funded for their peers. Animals to select from include cows,  pigs and goats.

The funds, along with letters from the students, will then be sent to Uganda with the ChangeALife team, headed by Jean Semler and her husband, Dave Thelen, when they return to Migyera to continue their work in July.

Pierrepont School is the first educational institution in the United States to participate in the FundsForFarming program.
