Sioux City school adopts families to make Christmas merry
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Some area high school students are helping make Christmas a little merrier for some families this year.
Tuesday, West High Student Council and Multicultural Club members purchased Christmas items for families they have adopted this Christmas.
The students collected a little over $3,600 from West High students from December 1st through the 10th and now they are helping fill the Christmas lists of seven families.
Students say they are happy to help out.
"It makes you feel really good. It makes me feel even better that our school as a group raised all of that money for these families. I think that's the biggest triumph here, " said Chris Harbeck, West Senior.
The students will wrap the gifts and then they will go to families that the Community Action Agency selected.
