Region 8 students helping the hungry

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  Students of the Health, Wellness and Environmental Studies School in Jonesboro are conducting their first food drive.

Teacher Toshiba Pugh says the "Sack It Up For Santa" event is meant to help teach students about food health awareness.

Pugh also says that the food drive is a way students can take the lessons they have learned to the community "by providing healthy foods for those that are in need this time of year."

The "Sack It Up For Santa" food drive will continue until December 10th.
