High school students become ‘angels’ for elementary students

Hopefully this little story will warm your heart with the Christmas spirit. Arturo Salazar Elementary is located in our neighborhood at Clarendon and Ravinia. It’s a fairly new school, and it feeds into Moises E. Molina High School.

Apparently, students at Molina decided they didn’t want children at Salazar to go without this Christmas. So as part of the Angel Tree program, the high school students bought roughly 200 Christmas presents — which they purchased with their own money and donated willingly — and personally delivered them to the Salazar students last Friday right before the holiday break.

I can only imagine that the reactions’ of the Salazar students was a wonderful Christmas present to the Molina students who participated.
