The Good News Is... Big kids helping little kids

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Nations Ford Elementary students got a taste of Christmas in June. Kids from first to fifth grades packed the school gym Wednesday afternoon.

Students from South Meck High School showed up with arms full of presents for the kids who don't often get brand new things.

Among the treasures in each care package; toys, clothes, socks, underwear, and art supplies.

The smiles on each students face, both young and old, told the story quite well.

It feels good to give to others. Sometimes, it feels better to give than to get. Above the noise of tearing paper and squeals of delight, you could hear "thank you" from each child. A small gesture of kindness goes a long way.
