A group of private citizens collected more than $14,000 for teachers in Lake Havasu City to show their appreciation.

Today's News-Herald reports that members of the Havasu community donated more than $8,000 and a local therapeutic massage vendor donated an additional $6,000 that was used to buy gift cards for the city's teachers.

The donors, who were mostly parents, organized the effort as part of Teacher Appreciation Week.

Lake Havasu High School teacher Ginny Sautner says the donations were a huge surprise but much appreciated.
