The students at Dickinson's Hope Christian Academy are bringing a bit of Christmas cheer to over 40 elderly people in the community.

The school worked with Stark County Social Services to identify people who may have been overlooked in regard to a Christmas present.

Over 40 paper angels were pinned to a 2-foot angel with fiber-optic wings. Each contained a wish list of gift ideas for a man or a woman.

"We explained the project to the kids, so those paper angels disappeared lickety-split. It's been amazing to see the gifts pile up in the hallway," said administrator Ron Dazell. "We averaged one angel per kid. We know some families took two or three angels."

The students were encouraged to include Christmas greeting cards.

"It's always good to see their generosity," he said.
