New Jersey students hold benefit concert for custodian with family in Venezuela

ORADELL, New Jersey (WABC) -- Some local students teamed up for an act of kindness by helping out those affected by the violence in Venezuela.

Students at River Dell Regional High School in New Jersey held a benefit concert for one of their custodians, Evelin Lee.

Her family lives in Venezuela so last week everyone came together and brought food and clothing, and raised more than $1600.

She has been shipping the items overseas but it can take weeks if not months to get there.

Students sent us a video talking about why this fundraiser was so important to them.
