The Willard Elementary students quickly began collecting canned food items for Thanksgiving.
"They kinda made it into a contest so they really got into it." says Willard Elementary Student Britany Baker.
Joshua's Dream foundation and a local food bank will benefit.
"We've had a fun time doing this motivating & encouraging all the kids K-8 grade." says Willard Elementary Student Brandi Noyes.
