Pleasant Hill Students Give Gifts to Parents
A Springfield teacher is making sure kids can give gifts, as well as receive them, this holiday season.
Kathy Lamsargis, who teaches reading at Pleasant Hill Elementary, has been collecting gifts for parents throughout the year. The idea is to make sure kids can give their moms and dads or grandmas and grandpas something to unwrap.
This is the 10th year they've organized the effort.
"I've had a lot of grandmothers and parents tell me after the Christmas break with tears in their eyes that that was one gift that they got under the tree that they did not expect," Lamsargis said. "They were totally surprised by it."
This was all made possible through donations from members of the community, including some local businesses.
