Students leave coats for homeless in downtown Rochester
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A group of Rochester students spent Tuesday outside the classroom helping those in need.
The group of 23 students from Bay Knoll School went out in downtown Rochester to scatter warm clothes around the city for the homeless.
The students left new and gently used coats, hats and scarves on benches and tied around street signs surrounding the Central Library for those in need to find.
"We're not only blessing the people here in Rochester, but we are being blessed by it too," said Sue Kingman, principal at Bay Knoll School. "These kids look forward to this every year and they are just thrilled to be able to give back to the community."
Students feel great about it too.
"We all feel happy 'cause we want to see that smile on their face when they have the clothes," said Caleb Richelieu, a fifth grade student at Bay Knoll School.
The school started this tradition three years ago.
