Members of the Arlington High School Class of 2010 are raising money for the family of one of their classmates, a U.S. Army soldier who died in a helicopter crash, Patch, a YourArlington partner, reports

Chief Warrant Officer 2 Marwan S. Ghabour, 27, was among five American soldiers killed in the crash in Egypt last  Nov. 12.

The class launched a GoFundMe campaign a week ago to donate money to Ghabour's parents and younger siblings. As of 1:45 p.m. Feb. 24, it has raised $2,305 of its $5,000 goal.

"This period is tough on everyone, so we deeply appreciate anything our community contributes," John Holowitz, a classmate of Ghabour's who started the effort, wrote on the fund-raising page.
