Millikan Students Raise Funds for Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Students at Millikan Charter Middle School in Sherman Oaks are doing their part to support children fighting cancer in Los Angeles.

Even the smallest hobby can serve as a means for giving back.

Students at Millikan Charter Middle School, under the guidance of Kim Estrada, an instructional aide and cancer survivor, have taken on the task of sewing quilts for cancer patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. It is part of the school's campaign to raise funds for cancer awareness.

In 2011, the program's inaugural year, students raised $1,800, and in 2012, students are striving to raise $2,000 for a charity of their choice. Last year, students raised money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure charity.
