COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Students at Allen Elementary will be hosting a school-wide assembly to present how much money the school has raised in its efforts to provide a cow for a family in Africa.

The assembly culminates a month long focus on literacy and kindness which featured the book 14 cows for America by Carmen Agra Deed.

The book includes a true story about the Massia nation of Kenya, Africa. The nation provided 14 cows to the U.S. after hearing of the 9-11 tragedy.

The assembly, celebrating the fundraising for a family in Africa, will take place Friday, Dec. 20 at 8:30 a.m. at Allen Elementary in Columbus, Ga.
