GRANITE CITY, Ill. (KMOV.com) – One Metro East high school found a way to share the Christmas spirit with those facing life-threatening diseases.

Granite City High School students are packing gift bags for young adults fighting cancer.

The students came up with the idea from their physical education teacher, Ashley Swip.

Swip runs a non-profit organization called Three Little Birds Four Life that grants wishes for cancers patients during the holidays by delivering bags of goodies.

“That’s what we are here for, to help make a difference in the world, hope when we bring the bags to them it makes them happy and brings a big smile to their faces,” said Swip.

The high school students started their own chapter called the Warrior Flock as they plan to spread holiday cheer.

Students will deliver more than 200 bags to cancer patients at Siteman Cancer Center.
