Students from Aquinas Middle School in La Crosse donated a busload full of food Monday to the Wafer Food Pantry.

The students collected the food over the past several weeks as part of a school-wide food drive.

They reached their goal of two tons of food, dropping off more than 4,000 pounds. The students say they were happy to help the food pantry.

"It's just fun to help and it brings happiness to everybody. It helps the poor. It's amazing what we can do," said Aquinas 7th grader Abby Bettis.
