Young students reach out to others

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Some Albany elementary school students display the real meaning of Christmas, giving toys to less fortunate kids.

Live Oak Elementary students and school leaders donated toys to homeless kids at the Faith Community Outreach Center in downtown Albany Tuesday afternoon.

The second through fifth graders used their own money to buy and wrap toys to give to children living at the shelter.

"We knew that we could bless them with something we knew we could give them," said Fifth Grader Kyndall Butler.

"I am so grateful to get stuff, I went out and bought some with my birthday money. And gave a little boy a race car," said Fifth grader Frederick Williams.

Principals said the students wanted to do a service project to help people in the community during Christmas.
