St. Anne students learn important lesson of giving

Posted: Updated:

Every year, students at St. Anne Catholic School participate in community service projects. But, this year they are spreading good will just a little more than normal.

Student Council Treasurer Bailey Braneff says all it took to pile on the success was one announcement.

"One day, in the announcements, we asked if people would like to give. We gave them Goodwill bags," she said.

Those bags turned into two truckloads of donations to the charity that helps people get back on their feet and puts them back to work.

"We're very pleased and happy to have partnered with St. Anne. It's an incredible opportunity for the children to go home, go through and find items that they are no longer using, clothes they may be growing out of or they don't have use for anymore and are able to donate to a wonderful cause," said Jade Rayburn with Goodwill.

This is the second project students took on this year. Students have also raised more than $3,800 for the Gift of Life program.
