Emily Keinath with WNEM5, reported on a ninth-grade student at Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy, Zoey, who with the support of local businesses and community members, managed to raise $10,290 to purchase grain bin entrapment equipment for her local first responders. This equipment will play a crucial role in saving lives and aiding farmers in rural communities like Ithaca, Michigan.

Ithaca, a rural community heavily dependent on agriculture, faced a pressing issue - the lack of grain bin entrapment equipment. Zoey, upon learning about this critical need, was inspired to take action. She discovered that the local fire station had previously applied for grants to acquire this equipment but had been denied twice. Determined to make a difference, Zoey decided to initiate a fundraiser to support her local fire station.

Zoey's fundraising campaign received an overwhelming response from the community. Local businesses and community members rallied behind her cause, recognizing the importance of equipping first responders with the necessary tools to save lives.
