A group of seven youth from the Boys and Girls Club of the White Earth Reservation have raised $1,500 for the children’s hospital.

According to the release, the Anishinaabe children of the reservation have been taught, despite unique geography and economic hardship, to honor and share cultural values by helping others. Honoring their values is reflected through acts of selflessness, the release said.

The White Earth Reservation is located just northeast of Detroit Lakes, Minn.
