MILLBURN, NJ - They may have looked a little crazy, but students at Hartshorn Elementary School were serious about raising money for the United Way - and they did it.

The Hartshorn Student Council sponsored a school-wide fundraiser during May to raise money for the United Way of Millburn-Short Hills.
