Students shop for 250 children

Students from Cleveland High School’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes find shopping for children they don’t know a great way to start the holiday season. The students spent Nov. 19 buying gifts for 250 children from the Salvation Army Angel Tree sponsored by Alabama Power. In 2 1/2 hours, they bought gifts for all 250 children. Accompanying adults were amazed to see the group shopping so unselfishly for the children.
