Posted: Updated:

Students in Thomas County want to make sure kids in need have a Merry Christmas.

Thomas County Central High School is sponsoring their annual shop with a yellow jacket or SWAY-J, Saturday, December 14.

Teams of students will raise money to help kids from area schools buy Christmas gifts.

They take them on a shopping trip to Walmart where each child that is sponsored can spend $100.

"They must spend $65 on family members and then the $35 dollars that's left over they can spend on themselves. Its and amazing program and you wouldn't believe how high school students would be so dedicated in raising this money and helping these young children out, " said Regina Beasley.

SWAY-J starts at the school Saturday at 9 a.m. The kids will enjoy activities, snacks and they also get to wrap the gifts they buy. The high school chorus will sing throughout the store.

More donations are still needed. You can Thomas County Central High School at 229-225-5050.
