With Christmas just around the corner, students at Concordia Lutheran High school are getting ready for a big project.
Every year at this time the students come together to collect items for families in need, through the Christmas Bureau. Last year, 32 families benefited from the many donations from students, faculty and staff. 385 boxes of gifts. 12 bikes. 32 families helped. And one very special Christmas.
The entire school came together to collect gifts for families in need. Students chose what they wanted to get for each child and came together to put money together. This money went to buy what they did not pick out individually.
The Christmas Bureau will be distributing the gift boxes. The families receiving them are with several different social services in the community who would otherwise not get to spend Christmas the way they would like to.
