A group of Spirit Line and HOSA (Future Health Professionals) club students joined the 47th Annual Angeles Del Barrio annual Christmas toy wrapping event, December 2. This event was sponsored by Chicanos Por La Causa. The students spent 4½ hours wrapping presents and stuffing over 10,000 stockings to be given out to the community at the annual celebrations. The students were invited to help out on Saturday morning (Dec. 5) for the actual event when the toys and stockings were delivered. Sixteen students came to the school at 5 a.m. to help set up. They ran the Arizona Cardinals Fuel Up to Play 60 obstacle course. The students spent two hours picking up trash, helping all the vendors break down their tent and collecting tables and chairs.   

“Our students were the first to arrive and the last to leave. To see our students give back to a community that is in great need, to give back to the organization that has helped many of their own families was amazing,” Nursing Instructor Tricia Pitts said.
