GLENDALE -- Two young students facing two separate challenges. One fights for her life. The other one escaped with her life. Now, classmates are coming to the rescue.

On Friday, October 26th, the giving got good in Glendale where members of the Nicolet School District community contributed to a fund for third grader Audrey Parrot. She has been diagnosed with leukemia. The preliminary tally after just five full days of fundraising is just over $3,000.

But those students will be the first to tell folks that this show of generosity is not uncommon in these parts.

Iyana Turner is learning about the care in this community for herself.

"My little sister came downstairs -- screaming -- telling me that there was a fire upstairs, there's a fire upstairs," said Turner.

On Saturday, October 20th, a fire burned through the Milwaukee house she shared with her mother and three younger siblings. All now live in a hotel.

"My mom told my principal, and my principal was like, 'Okay, well, yeah, let's help! We can do something.' And, like everyone just started bringing clothes, and, like, furniture, and, like, all this stuff, and I was just like, 'Whoa,'" said Turner.

Meanwhile, exceeding the $3,000 mark earns the students a chance to see a few teachers get buzz cuts and another opportunity to share that sense of community.
