Each grade competed against each other to bring in the most non-perishable items for The Neighbor's Place food pantry.
The eighth graders won, donating 430.
All together, the school chipped in 829 items.
They say they do it because they like to help.
"Since Christmas is the season of giving, we thought it'd be a good idea to give all this stuff to them," says eighth grader Gabrielle Detert. "It feels really good because everybody got to participate, and it shows that everybody cares."
For winning, the students get a "sweet treat" tomorrow or next week.
They don't know what it is, but say they're looking forward to finding out.
