Fifth-graders at Prairie Creek and Meadowlark elementaries are collecting items for patients at Wesley Children's Hospital in their second annual Kindness Project.

The students have been soliciting donations and items from area businesses with the goal of filling boxes to deliver to sick children on Feb. 14. Students collectively decided to forgo their own Valentine's Day party to spread kindness.

The fifth-graders created a website, wrote social media posts and learned about professionalism in the workplace. They also were interviewed by KWCH about the project. See the interview here.
