Daviess Co. second graders helping those less fortunate this season

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

 

Second grade students at Highland Elementary School in Daviess County are reaching out to the less fortunate this holiday season.

Students donated more than 750 items to the Boulware Mission in Owensboro. Gloves and socks will decorate the class holiday tree before being sent to the mission.

The school's word of the month for December is compassion, and the students chose to show compassion for others instead of exchanging gifts at their class holiday party.

"Sometimes people don't get to have stuff. So, it is good to help people during Christmas," second grader, Anjali Khanna said.

The Boulware Mission is also accepting donations from the public this holiday season.
