WAUSAU (WAOW)--Students at Newman Catholic St. Mark Elementary in Rothschild celebrate the holiday by shopping at the Giving Store. The store is set up in the basement of the school.
It's a chance for the children to buy Christmas presents for their family and friends. Nearly all of the gifts, whether new or gently used, are donated by families who have children attending the school.
The money raised through the Giving Store is then donated by the children to area charities.
Organizers say it's a great way to teach the children about shopping for others and giving to the needy.
