Bay Area Students help wrap holiday gifts
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- On Tuesday we discovered some of Santa's helpers, in the Bay Area. Students from St. Paul's School and Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland came together to wrap donated school supplies, toys, and clothes.
They will be given to more than 250 local foster children.
The effort comes a day after Toys For Tots said it would not be able to provide toys for those children this season because of a sharp decline in donations.
One student volunteer helped fill the need by donating more than 500 items of clothing.
