Fifth graders at Pierceton Elementary are giving back to the community they live in.
Teachers were given a list of 14 seniors that live in the Pierceton community that could use a little extra Christmas cheer. Teachers then sent out a list of needed items with the students. Parents and students were extremely generous and brought in enough donations to fill 14 laundry baskets with a variety of items.
Donated items included toiletry items, snacks, winter accessories and items for entertainment.
Students helped assemble the baskets and they will be delivered to the local men and woman before Christmas.
