ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Roosevelt Students are making the holidays extra special for some elementary kids within the district.
Students and staff dropped off holiday boxes for students at Conklin, Welsh, McIntosh, and Haskell Elementary Schools. Some of the items included gloves, crayons, and coloring books.
“Our students have been working extremely hard, giving every dime, every quarter,a ll the money that they’ve been saving to help make this possible for them to give back to the community. We just wanted our students to know that it’s a good thing to give back,” said Roosevelt CEC Counselor, Cassandra Glover.
The gifts are from a community service project earlier this year that was funded through donations from Roosevelt students and staff.
