Students brought in granola bars, fruit snacks, deodorant, soap, chapstick, tissues, toothbrushes, toothpaste, blankets, coats, etc. They also brought money and with that money Mrs. Morgan bought socks, gloves, hats, scarves, and McDonalds gift cards. We put together the packages and they each made a card to go into one of the packages.
