It was a lesson in generosity for students at Rochester's School 16. The Victor-Farmington Rotary and Salvation Army were on hand Monday to hand-out backpacks and school supplies to kids.
More than 150 students who might not otherwise have school supplies received a backpack containing notebooks, folders, and other supplies.
For those doing the giving, the smiles made it worth the effort.
"Well, just looking at the children's faces today while they were receiving the bookbags, it was so nice they would just look at you. It was little strange because they don't know you, but, they look at you and say thank you, and you see that thank you came straight from the heart, you know?"
The Victor-Farmington Rotary Club has done several projects at School 16, including the distribution of Christmas gifts.
