Children celebrate Global Handwashing Day

HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- A group of Hudsonville children took part in a special event to celebrate something we all do every day -- and to help storm victims in South Carolina.

Thursday is Global Handwashing Day, dedicated to teaching how important hand-washing is to preventing illnesses.

Students at Forest Grove Elementary went to International Aid in Spring Lake to take part in today's celebration.


A big part of Thursday's event was for the kids to help pack hygiene kits to be sent to flood victims in South Carolina. The students also participated in games and educational activities.
