Medford, Ore. — A local elementary school’s student council is shopping today to benefit other kids in need.
They’re kids – helping kids.
“We’re helping kids from the Maslow Project who might not get as much as us,” said Emily Hauser, Griffin Creek student.
Ten students – grades from 4th to 6th grade – shopping for 24 homeless youth this holiday season. The funds to buy items on Santa’s wish list, raised all by themselves.
“Each classroom will raise money for a kid and we came out here to buy them some toys,” Hauser said.
Toys – and even clothes to stay warm this winter.
“It makes me feel so happy and warm, and I just love it,” Austin said, Griffin Creek student.
They’re not the only ones who share the love, Walmart the students with a $200 gift card for their cause. With a little help from Santa, after around two hours shopping, they left with full carts – and even fuller hearts.
“It makes me feel happy that I get to do it and help these people,” Ty said, Griffin Creek student.
