During the month of November, students at two Huntington schools showed the spirit of giving by collecting items for students living in Nicaragua.

Davis Creek Elementary collected personal care and other items to be given to needy children at the La Pancorva School in Leon, Nicaragua.

Students at Huntington East Middle School collected school supplies for not only students at La Pancorva, but also at the Remar Orphanage in Managua, Nicaragua.

The supplies were delivered December 9 as part of a mission trip conducted by Fifth Avenue Baptist Church's Christmas Mission Team.
