HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Some Beta Club students from Seminary High School spent Thursday taking part in a Christmas tradition of giving and spreading holiday cheer.

About one dozen club members visited Wesley Medical Center and Forrest General Hospital to sing Christmas carols and visit with patients.

It was part of the club's community service outreach.

Club members also gave presents to several children receiving treatment at Wesley Rehabilitation Services.

"Every year we decide to donate toys and usually, we just send them to Blair E. Batson (Children's Hospital), but we all wanted to keep it local this year and be very hands-on involved with it," said Julia Ashley, a Beta Club member. 

"I'm really glad that we get to be part of this as a hands-on project, and just to give back to the community," said Hannah Kelly, another Beta Club member. "I think it's a great way and just a great experience for all of us," she said.

"We receive as much from this as the kids receive and it's just been a great experience for all of us," said Dawn Lott, a co-sponsor of the Senior Beta Club. "I'm very proud of the efforts they have put forth to do this today," she said.
