CRESTVIEW — Several students will return to school Jan. 7 refreshed from winter break and from knowing some families have financial relief because of their efforts.

Nearly 20 students, including those in Davidson Middle School’s seventh-grade civics class and Crestview High School’s leadership program, organized canned food items, clothing and toiletries for local families before the break.

"We provided for seven families this year," Tim Sexton, a Davidson civics teacher, announced Friday. "We were able to fill each of the families’ needs."

Families whom the students otherwise may know.

Sexton had noticed that several Davidson students come from lower-income households, which inspired the idea.

The students gathered donations through the Taking Care of Our Own program.
