Twenty elementary school students weave their way through the aisles at KMart in Rock Island. They are on a shopping spree.

These kids attend the Rock Island Center for Math and Science. They are student council members. They raised $460.00 to buy Christmas presents for Toys For Tots.  The school held bake sales and received donations. Students also brought in loose change. 

On Thursday, the kids filled shopping carts with about 64 items. Barbie Dolls, board games, Play Doh, and Hot Wheels are some of the toys they selected. Children reaching out to kids they've never met. Christmas presents designated for less fortunate children in the area.

Principal, Doctor Ruth Ann Tobey- Brown says this is really a lesson about goodwill. The students learn that no matter what your age, you can always make a difference. You cannot put a price tag on that!
