Johnson City, NY (WBNG Binghamton) An organization working to help single parents go back to school is receiving some help of its own from local students.

Four Binghamton University students worked together to create a video for Mom's House, a non-profit organization that works to help single parents go back to school by providing low-cost or free childcare.

The philanthropy students helped the organization for class credit the first time around, but felt they could do more.

They entered a video contest, featuring Mom's House and how it helps the community.

"They produced a video about Mom's House in large measure because they were so impressed with the work Mom's House did," says Binghamton University Professor, David Campbell.

The students won the contest, and were awarded $10,000 to give to the organization.

Mom's House says they will use the money to rebuild their space that was flooded in September, adding a second floor to protect their equipment from possible future flooding.
