OLDSMAR, Fla. (AP) - A Tampa Bay-area couple gave every fifth-grade student at Oldsmar Elementary School the gift of giving.

The Tampa Bay Times reports (https://bit.ly/1k6SBN7 ) that John and Joyce Sanders gave each student two gift cards: $50 to spend on themselves, and $100 to spend on other people. The total came to just over $13,000.

Before Christmas, the 87 fifth-graders presented the results to the couple: The students had made donations to Oldsmar Cares, Toys for Tots, the Humane Society and a number of other local organizations. Many of the students also bought Christmas gifts for their family members with the money.
