"I feel good that I'm helping out but I also feel sad that there are a lot of unfortunate families out there," seventh-grader Anna Lee said Tuesday.

Students scoured the store's toy and clothing aisles to pick out gifts for a family of five that included 2-month-old, 3-year-old and 12-year-old girls.

"This is a good opportunity for the kids to enjoy the process of learning to give," club counselor Gretchen Garza explained. "They are so excited to do this. They are amazing kids."
