Instead of heading to class after the first bell, students at Emmanuel Christian headed to the cafeteria Tuesday morning to help others.
The student council reached out to the Union Mission in Fairmont to help this Christmas season. The mission already had gifts but they needed wrapped. Therefore, all the students in grades seven through 12 helped do just that Monday morning. The school provided the wrapping paper and other supplies and the students got to work. Some items were put in bags and others were wrapped. They even put nametags on some of the gifts.
This is the first time the school has done this service project.
"In the bible, that's actually what God tells us to do. It tells us to help those who need help and to take care of them. It feels pretty good, it feels nice to know that we're helping people in need and that, it seems like, everyone's enjoying it," said Student Council President Ryan Bell.
The gifts were wrapped in under an hour and were ready to head back to the Union Mission in Fairmont.
