LA CROSSE, Wis. -

A group of middle school students spread some Christmas cheer and hope to help families out east.

Mackenzie Hicks from Longfellow Middle School and some of her friends spent some time carolling at the Festival Foods on State Road in La Crosse. She wanted to do a fundraiser after last weeks shootings.

Hicks says it's about making sure they know people care. "Having that feeling that your son or daughter or wife or husband has died, we just want them to know that people are out there caring for them," said Hicks.

All the money will go to the school and the families affected by the shooting.
