You're never to young to experience the joy of giving.
Students at Westside Elementary in Warner Robins learned that through a successful can drive.
They collected about 3,000 of them during the past month.
Guidance Counselor Linda Morse says most Westside students don't come from the affluent families. It is a Title I school, with 100-percent of the students receiving free lunch.
So, Morse says giving a little means a lot for most of the students.
She says children who couldn't bring cans, helped lift boxes or sort food.
Morse says everyone pitched in.
She said, "One of our fifth graders made a poster and it was, it said, 'What would you do if you woke up on Thanksgiving and this was your cupboard?'. It was a picture of any empty cabinet. So, those are the reasons our students give for wanting to do this."
