Area students help provide Christmas cheer

Area students help provide Christmas cheer
LEWISTON, ID - Different organizations around the valley have been teaming up to make sure every child at the Northwest Children's Home gets a present this year and, as of today, that goal is met!

The day for Northwest Children's Home representative Jill Copeland started at Clarkston High School. Presents lined the tree in the avid classroom where students chose to buy Christmas presents for a group of boys.

Teacher Paige Frazier said the students had the option of doing community service projects like picking up trash or helping out in the community, but they wanted to work as a group to make sure every kid gets a toy this year.

"I had one student that said they were more excited about buying their gift for their student here than they were for their own Christmas,” said Frazier. “And that was pretty cool."

"Every child on our campus has gotten gifts this year and will be sponsored and it's just fantastic," said Copeland.

Shortly after collecting gifts at CHS, Copeland drove over to Regence Blueshield in Lewiston. Santa's elves were busy wrapping presents for other kids in the Northwest Children's Home.

Thanks to the generosity of all of the different groups that came together this year, the Northwest Children's Home kids are going to have a bright Christmas morning.
