CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Students at Tomahawk Creek middle school in Chesterfield County are in the giving spirit this holiday season. They've got gift cards in their hands.

For weeks, students collected $4,000 dollars in donations as part of a giving back program.

The money went to the purchase of these gift cards which will be handed out today to needy families of the school.

Families can use the cards to buy a holiday meal or gifts. The idea for the program was thought up by a 13-year-old student at the school.
