Students raised enough to donate money and gifts to six needy families in Arlington Heights.
"We know that some of our own students have been touched in the past (by the program) and that being a part of these efforts, no matter how big or small, their part is appreciated and makes the Thomas Middle School community extremely special," said Shauna Burhop, PTA member and real estate agent with Baird & Warner.
