We first told you about Coby Etchison’s Christmas Project here. He wanted to fill up 10 baskets with food for needy families here in Nelson by this past weekend. Well apparently Coby made his goal and then some!
His mom dropped us an update this morning:

food. We were shooting for 10 basketsâ€¦we got 12 basketsâ€¦2 boxes(we ran out

learning exp. for him and we have already talked about a spring project. We
