WOSC students stuff stockings for kids in need

Altus_It looked a little bit like Santa's Workshop Wednesday as students attending Western Oklahoma State College (WOSC) in Altus stuffed stockings so some children will have a Merry Christmas.  The stockings - full of candy and toys - will go to local organizations serving underprivileged children.

The student "elves" worked hard filling the stockings to the brim, and they say they hope what's inside will help make a child's Christmas merrier.  Aubrey Crowat has been working on the project, and says it's important to think of others this time of year.  "I think it's important to remember not everybody has as much as we do," she said.  "We need to make sure that everybody has a good Christmas this year."

Basketball player Deandre Chambers says he hopes his contribution will brighten a child's day.  "We love to help the kids - help them have a good Christmas," he said.  "We like to put a smile on their faces."

All of the students' efforts put a smile on Wilson Head Start Director Gloria Parker's face as well.  "It's nice to know that the community cares enough to help the Head Start children," she said.  Youngster Christopher Spalding says he has one big Christmas wish.  "A four-wheeler that really transforms - just push the button and then you take off," he said.

The Wilson Head Start Learning Center is one of many places benefiting from the WOSC stocking stuffer project.  There are 54 kids who will get a little something extra, thanks to the college students.  All of the gifts and stocking stuffers were made possible through donations.  Parents also do fundraisers and other projects to help earn the money for the holiday treats.
