READING, Pa. - The holidays are getting brighter for kids going through tough times.
Volunteers from the Exeter Township School District dropped off presents for children staying at the Safe Berks shelter in Reading.
The gifts were collected by students at Jacksonwald Elementary School.
Safe Berks said it is "overwhelmed" by the kind gesture.
"This is a beautiful time of the year, and I'll tell you, Berks County is, I think without a doubt, unmatched in their generosity," said Jan Cremer, Safe Berks.
The students earn rewards for good behavior, and they were able to exchange their rewards for items to donate.
