Student Council members from the Edmonson County Middle School and the 5/6 Center went on a Christmas cheer field trip today to help shop for the local Christmas Angel program.
Sponsored by the Youth Service center, the program purchases and distributes Christmas gifts to needy children and families that could use a little help during the Christmas season. Items not only include toys and games, but regular necessities, like clothing, shoes, and personal hygiene products.
Almost 40 students participated in today's trip. Fifth grader Alyssa Doyle said she and her friends had fun helping others today. "Sometimes people don't have very much and they need help," she said. "That's what we're here for, that's what we're supposed to do."
