Pre-K 3 students at St. Anne Catholic School in Beaumont are learning about giving to others in need. Students in the three-year-old program Thursday brought a new teddy bear to donate to children in the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program.
"We wanted to teach the kids about giving to others," said Pre-K teacher Shanna Briggs
Briggs said the youngsters were very excited about being able to participate.
"We told them the story about how Jesus will share with others and this is something we can do at Christmas," said Briggs.
Briggs said children from some of the other classes also donated bears for the youngsters to give.
Volunteers with CASA will match up the donated bears with children who are the right ages to enjoy the present.
