St. Stephen Elementary School students and staff would like to give a big thank you to the members of the Santee Circle Community Church for remembering them during this cold winter.
The members of the church got together and donated some much-needed coats for some of the boys and girls. The donation of coats came at a great time especially with the temperature outside being cold lately.
Although the holiday season has already passed the boys and girls were very appreciative of the gifts given to them by the Rev. Chris Williams and his congregation.
