Local elementary school gives back to families in need during holidays

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

Fruchthendler Elementary School has been teaching its students to give back during the holidays for more than 20 years.

Students and parents wrapped toys, household items, food and clothing to donate to 13 families in need.

The schools’ PTA President, Ashleigh Oden, said that she encourages other schools to give back during the holidays because it benefits the community and it teaches the students to appreciate what they have.

“It’s a really good learning experience for all of our children here at Fruchthendler Elementary School too, to be able to be a part of something like this and to give back to the community,” Oden said.

“You shouldn’t just think about yourself, you should think about other people and help them,” Third-grade student, Armaan McCarthy said.

Fruchthendler Elementary has been participating in this program since 1989.
