Holmen high schoolers open store to benefit 4th grader with leukemia

HOLMEN, Wis. - If you're looking to do some holiday shopping and help a family in need, a class of Holmen seniors are hoping you'll stop by their holiday store.

The project is part of a marketing class at Holmen High School.

The seniors organize the store and are open for the weeks leading up to Christmas.

The goal is to raise money for Aaron Johnson's family.

He's a fourth grader at Evergreen Elementary who has leukemia and is currently being treated at a hospital in Rochester.

Student organizers say when they heard about Aaron, it was an easy decision to help him.

"We had his father come in talk to us, talk to our class and after he told us his story and everything he's been through we kind of just knew he was the one we should help out," said student organizer Kyle Knudson.

The store is open Monday through Saturday until December 20. It's open from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
