A special group of 5th and 6th grade students from St. Andrew's School are helping other less fortunate students this Christmas season.
On Wednesday morning, a group of 65 students went to Target to shop for foster children. Each student had one child to buy for and knew the gender and age so they could shop accordingly. The students were asked to do some extra chores for family and friends to earn the money they would spend.
The toy aisles at target were packed as the students ran around trying to find the best gifts.
"We get a sheet, do chores, get our parents to sign a log and we get the money and come here and go shopping," said Jack Willy, one of the student shoppers.
"We talk to the students about what it is like in foster care so they know the situation and the students here always go above and beyond to help," said Elizabeth Wiseman, a teacher at St. Andrews.
The children realize it is important to give back, especially during the Christmas season.
"It shows that there are kids out there that need stuff and we should help them out," said Sydney Orr, one of the student shoppers
"It is really great to help those kids out that can't really get a lot of presents this year," said Jordan Benson, one of the students.
