CHS English Students Learn Lesson of Giving

Posted:
Bismarck, ND -

The English textbooks get pushed aside for a lesson on giving and gratitude.

Century High English students have raised money to buy items to fill the wish lists of 14 families in our area.

It's a project that Century High has taken on the past 16 years.

But this year they raised the most money, $6,000 to buy items for families being served by the Abused Adult Resource Center.

Students Brandy Myers and Amber Jordan says it's been gratifying to help and also a humbling experience to see what these families truly want this Christmas season.

"We are wrapping up a comforter right now, they've asked for shampoo, conditioner, little girls have asked for dresses to dress up in," says Brandy Myers.

"And we're wrapping coats and boots and things we take for granted and these people are asking for them for Christmas. So knowing we get to be part of making it special for them is inspiring and incredible," says Amber Jordan.

The girls say they wish they could see the families faces when they open their presents.
