GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO) Bookcliff Middle School students and staff started raising money and taking donations months ago. But the pay off came Saturday when three local families received a holiday dinner and gifts for the children. The Bookcliff student body vice president says its a great experience, and he loved how involved each of the students were in the project. "It's very, it makes my heart warm, it's very special; I'm glad to do it; I've done it all three years," said Tate Higgins, Bookcliff Student body Vice-President.

Several students got to pick out the presents from the family wish lists and wrap them before being dropped off. The school raised $2,400 dollars and more than 700 cans of food. Each family receives a turkey, vegetables, and something sweet for dessert.

The program started several years ago, and Bookcliff faculty say it's a tradition that will stick around for a long time.
