Elementary students host community movie night


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - Students from Fairview Elementary School in Springfield are hosting a community movie night Tuesday.

The event will be held at 5:15 in the school's gym at 2200 E. Ridgley Ave. They will be showing "Paddington 2."

To get in, all you have to do is bring a notebook or a box of cereal. That plus proceeds from snack sales will be donated to local groups to combat homelessness and help at-risk children and teens.

This event is part of a program called Our American Voice, a nonprofit that works to help teach kids about democracy and community problem solving.
