TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

In Tempe today, there was another reminder that giving can be as rewarding as receiving.

Students at Gethsemane Lutheran School in Tempe are packing shoe boxes to send all over the world to children who would otherwise go without presents this Christmas.

The school children worked like Santa's elves, writing letters, packing boxes and working together to get all the gifts ready.

School officials said they hope to pack nearly 300 boxes on Thursday.

Last year the school packed more than 200 gift boxes.
