It was an early Christmas for patients at the Trinity CancerCare Center as students from North Plains Elementary School dropped off boxes of donated goods for Trinity Health Foundation and several other local agencies. The items were contributed by students, families, and staff over a 12-day period as part of the school’s ’12 Days of Giving’ project, which takes the place of school gift exchanges. On Dec. 15, student representatives from K-5th grade spent most of their day making deliveries. ‘It feels good to give to others and maybe brighten someone’s Christmas,’ said North Plains 5th grader Laurel Harrison. Pictured along with the scores of blankets, socks, coloring books, and candy for cancer patients are the student representatives, two of their teachers, and CancerCare Director Shane Jordan.
