Chief Kamiakin Elementary is holding their 3rd annual student giving store on Dec. 16-17 and are asking for donations from the community.

The school awards points to students for various positive behaviors and they can be used at the store as a way for kids to buy gifts for their loved ones for the holidays.

Elizabeth Arriaga said, “This tradition was set into place with the intent of giving our students something to look forward to during a time of year that can be stressful for families, as well as to teach them to focus on giving rather than receiving during the holidays.”

If you have new or gently used items in categories such as scarves and gloves, decorations, games, DVDs, books, picture frames and other items that could be given as gifts, you can donate them to Chief Kamiakin through Dec. 13.

Donations can be dropped off between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
