GREEN BAY, Wis. — Students are learning about integrity and doing what's right for others.

From peanut butter to jelly, to fresh fruits and veggies, fifth grade students are packing lunches for Lunches of Love.

"We are here for making sandwiches, we do it every Thursday we make sandwiches for the homeless to give them lunches so they have something to eat," said students Jasmine Rivera.

Every week fifty lunches are made, 425 so far in total, for shelters around Green Bay, "it helps them with what they can get through and it helps them go through lots of difficulties."

Students like Jasmine, think people may need a pick me up, "the shelters have to turn people away, there's too many people in the shelters, so they're probably outside, and they're probably cold and hungry."

Teacher Lisa Madsen, said she's teaching about being compassionate and doing whats right even when no one is watching, "whats out in the community, how we can make a difference, small deeds we do make a big impact, on people."
