ROCHESTER, Minn.- The season of giving is here and students at Rochester Central Lutheran School are giving in a special way. 

More than 300 preschool through eighth grade students packed over 35 backpacks to donate to the Olmsted County Foster Care Closet. 

Each backpack is filled with everything a child may need as they move into a new home. Everything from night lights, to coloring books, to stuffed animals...even a notebook filled with well wishes and signatures from students showing love and support.
