Why I like Gifts For Loved Ones

At Creston Elementary the students get time to look for presents for people we love. I like it because the people in Creston have a chance to donate items for us kids at school to make their holiday a happy one. In my mind the citizens that donated should be proud to make a child smile. Some of the school employees and others in the community help us children wrap up the items. This year I had Mrs. Shantz and was the one who volunteered to have the project in her room. All of the helpers should be thanked, as well as the people who donated the items. My whole family has to agree that this takes a lot of preparation, especially since the school does it once a year. Sometimes it takes me forever to find the right gifts for people I love but I always end up finding the right thing so far.

I’m in fourth grade at Creston Elementary. My name is Alissa Hays. I think Creston Elementary has a great idea and that is why I like Presents For People We Care About.
