Lake City High School senior and economics student Caden Dutra keeps an eye on his budget as items are scanned Tuesday morning at the Hayden Walmart. Dutra and his classmates raised about $10,300 to buy Christmas gifts and needed items for local families through the annual Give Back Project, which also serves as a real-world economics experience for the students.

LCHS wolf pack gives back

Economics students raise funds, go Christmas shopping for families in need

Just as wolves in a pack take care of their own, Lake City Timberwolves are taking care of their community. The joy, charity and goodwill of Christmas were on full display Tuesday morning as economics teacher Matt Ruchti's students took over the Hayden Walmart to find gifts and necessities for the families they "adopted" this holiday season through their Give Back Project.
