Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Over 50 care packages are going to foster kids in our metro thanks to Fargo High Schoolers.  

Cadets from the Junior ROTC and student council members from Fargo South High School spent hours Saturday afternoon making bags for Cass County Social Services.

The bags have a tie blanket, and toiletry items like toothbrushes and toothpaste. 

The students wanted to find a way to make a difference in their community and to show people that someone is always there for them.

"I feel like it's important to help out our community, especially locally. There are a lot of kids just in our school that need a lot of help and they may not say it. So, I feel like, donating these bags is our way of giving back," said one of the students leading the project, Brooklyn Klein.

The students will be presenting the bags this Tuesday to Cass County Social Services.
