A group of Upshur County elementary school students are learning the importance of giving back this month.
Students at Washington District Elementary are taking part in "giving to, sharing with, and caring for the community" during all month long.
They're doing that by sponsoring several charity drives.
Last week, they collected food for local pantries, and this week is donations to animal shelters and humane societies.
Next week will be the final drive, and they'll be collecting winter clothing for kids.
This is the first year the school's sponsored several different charity drives, but school officials hope it's not the last.
