A group of local kids in Indio did their part to help others less fortunate by making a large donation to The Narrow Door.
Around a hundred second-graders from Carillo Ranch Elementary School arrived with bags of handmade candy packs. They handed out the treats to give to other children from less-fortunate backgrounds.
In all, 1,500 candy packs were made this year, and students say they saw the importance of giving.
David Ramirez, is the founder of The Narrow Door, a non-profit that assists families in need.
He said students from the school have been donating candy packs for the past five years, $7,500 packs in total.
Ramirez is encouraged to see generosity at such a young age and hopes to inspire them further.
“My priority is that one day, one of these kids can will take over The Narrow Door, because they’ll love it so much, giving back to the community,” said Ramirez.
Those candy packs will be distributed to kids next week, when Narrow Door’s annual Christmas store opens up for families in need.
