 What are the tools necessary to help hungry families at Christmas?

 For Brock middle-schoolers, it's paper mache, colored paper, cardboard and creativity.

The winner of the best decorated shopping cart was Mrs. Booker's class with their igloo cart.

Mrs. Stromgren's class contributed the most food with more than 220 items.

In all, the kids made 18 hampers that will be donated to families of the school and to the Salvation Army.
