Last Wednesday, Montevideo middle school students Aurora Wymar and Laura VanRavenswaay delivered 100 gift bags for children that come into the Emergency Room at the Chippewa County-Montevideo Hospital.

The gift bags were put together with $100 earned from a community service essay contest sponsored by Just Because, a men’s business group in Montevideo. Laura and Aurora wrote their essay last year, and were one of three groups that won.

The bags include reading and activity books, notebooks and coloring books, get well cards, stuffed animals, pencils and crayons. Read more in the American-News.
