HOLTON, Kan. (WIBW)__ Children in Bangladesh will have a happier Christmas thanks to area students.

K-5th graders who are part of the "WILD 1's" group (Willing Involved Loving Disciples) gathered at Holton's Evangel United Methodist Church Wednesday to fill backpacks with love and goodies.

About 117 kids from three churches participate in the program.
They were paired with a student in Bangladesh as prayer partners, they then donated a book bag with items such as school supplies, toys and craft supplies for them.

The backpacks will now make their way to Bangladesh on a ship.
