In a tradition spanning decades, Midway High School classes collected gifts to fulfill the wish lists of 92 foster kids served by McLennan County Child Protective Services.

The rain subsided to a sprinkle just long enough for the Peer Assistance & Leadership students (PALS) to fill a school bus with Santa bags to deliver the haul downtown.

Senior Walker Garrett even convinced his dad, Secret Chef owner Billy Garrett, to let him borrow the company catering van to protect the 20 bicycles from today's rain.
