On Monday, at 9 a.m., 68 students from Covenant Day School in Matthews, and a few of the school's teachers went to Target with the sole purpose of purchasing items for those in need during this holiday season. As in previous years of the CDS/Matthews Police Department partnership, they were accompanied by School Resource Officer Don Warren, who previously handed out approximately 40 cards identifying the wish lists of unnamed local children in need of gifts this season.
As part of the annual Matthews Gives Back program, the seventh graders were divided into small groups and assigned a child to buy gifts for.
