Presents for Kids at McKinley Elementary

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Billings Clinic spreads some holiday cheer for the kids at McKinley Elementary School.

Staff at Billings Clinic donated toys, and volunteers made stockings for the kids. In the stockings were items such as socks and toothbrushes, along with a token that allows them to shop for a toy.

Billings Clinic staff members say McKinley has the second highest population of homeless students in School District Two. Kacie Rodahl with Billings Clinic says, "This morning I heard a story and it made me tear up. While I was in the classroom, one of the kids said they couldn't afford a Christmas tree this year so she wasn't sure Santa was coming, and she opened up her stocking and it was worth that, us doing this and spending the time, it was worth that for us to get involved."

It's the second year Billings Clinic has done the Santa's Workshop for the students at McKinley.
