ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The gift of giving, students of Spectrum school are getting into the holiday spirit as they donate Poinsettias to local nursing homes.
It's the first year Spectrum students participated in a project like this, it was led by the parent teacher organization. Over 100 Poinsettias were donated to 5 nursing homes throughout the Rockford area. On Thursday, students helped load the truck with poinsettias which were donated by parents.
