Bringing Christmas to underprivileged kids.

Area vocational students team up to collect toys.

The Camden Clark Foundation put on the Secret Santa Project.

Wednesday, high school students from PHS, Parkersburg South and Williamstown gathered to sort toys they plan on giving to area kids who might not otherwise have a Christmas filled with lots of gifts.

Students of the Health Occupation of America assisted over 83 kids of Camden Clark employees who met federal poverty guidelines.

"It gives us a great opportunity for the students and myself to donate our time. Like I said, it helps give back to the community. I don't know, I think with community service, it kinda makes Christmas seem much brighter," says Wood County Technical Center Teacher, Natalie Barnette.

The gifts will be available to parents near Christmas.
