CHARLEVOIX COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Students at a northern Michigan elementary school are learning about compassion this holiday season.

4th graders at Boyne City Elementary School wanted to do something that would make others feel loved and cared for.

They decided to help out nursing home residents in the area.

On Monday, with the help of volunteers, the 4th graders and their kindergarten reading buddies made pillow cases for the senior citizens.

They helped picked out the fabric and pinned the cases together as adults sewed and ironed.
