Other things in the bags were donated by stores in Oklahoma City.

One line in the notes reads, “We may be little, but our hearts are big.”

They plan to deliver the gift bags and notes to residents in Luther on Friday.

Nichols Hills Elementary Principal Carol Berry said the girls are sweet and always looking for ways to lend a hand. Their giving spirit inspired the idea to assist the schools as well, so the Nichols Hills student council is accepting donations of school supplies and gift cards to send to Luther campuses.

“It's that Oklahoma spirit,” Berry said. “We don't want our fellow man to suffer.”

Berry said the school will be collecting donations over the next two weeks to be delivered to schools in Luther.
