RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – A group of Rio Rancho Elementary students found a sweet way to give back.
A class of second graders rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty Wednesday morning, putting together a gingerbread house to be auctioned off in the 6th Annual Gingerbread Enchantment event.
The event is a fundraiser for Meals on Wheels. Their teacher says she picks a different service project each year to teach her class about getting involved.
“I think the kids really enjoy it, and they learn a lot about helping the community,” said Billie Helean, Second Grade Teacher.
The gingerbread house is one of many being auctioned off, with some being donated by master bakers.
