Students at El Dorado High School in Chandler ended
2012 in generous fashion, by bringing holiday presents and cheer to more than a
dozen children and adults through the school’s "Angel Tree" program.
El Dorado students and staff selected items from the
school’s Angel Tree list throughout the holiday season, and delivered gifts to
families before the school’s Christmas break. Students from El Dorado’s Student
Council made the trip to deliver the presents, and remarked on the happy
response from the children receiving gifts. "It was amazing," said Alveena Syed,
a Student Council member.
"The kids did an incredible job," said Emma Schindel,
El Dorado’s Student Council Advisor. "I think they were moved by how
appreciative these families were."
El Dorado students also brought in an assortment of
canned and boxed food items for holiday donation. Students filled holiday
containers with food, and even competed to make the most generous
donations. "Their dedication to this program was truly impressive," said Amy
Basaraba, an El Dorado English instructor and an organizer of the holiday food
