ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students at Radium Springs Elementary School spent the day dancing.

They raised funds for a school in Houston that was destroyed by Harvey.

Students gave money in order to dance.

Some students even donated funds in order to be able to dress down.

The school is one of the schools in Dougherty County that was most impacted by January's storm. 

School leadership said monetary donations for families were the biggest help then. 

Now they wanted to do something for another school going through a disaster.

"Hopefully we will raise a good amount of money in order to send it to those students to help," said assistant principal Shanekia Williams.

"They helped us when we went through the tornado and they lost most of what we didn't lose," said Evelyn Vicente, a fifth grader at the school. "They lost their schools and we still have our school. But all kids can't learn because of what happened."

All of the funds the school collects will be given to Bruce Elementary School in Texas.
