The boys at Woodlawn Children's Campus will have plenty of warm layers this winter thanks to the fund raising abilities of Boyle County High School's Future Educators of America.
By taking donations at Wal-Mart and at football games, the students were able to collect more than $300. With that money, they went on a Wal-Mart shopping spree to purchase winter clothing for the boys. The students also asked for clothing donations that will be divided up among the children.
"People were really generous, a lot more than I thought they'd be," said Ashley Anderson, FEA president.
Each boy will receive a sweatshirt and jogging suit. They had originally planned to buy all the boys winter coats, but decided that the lighter weight coats were more practical and would leave room for pants and sweatshirts as well.
The students spent a lot of time selecting their purchases. They wanted to make sure that the boys had plenty of warmth with hoods and lining. Wal-Mart manager Kenny Walton also helped the students by donating sock caps.
