Valentine’s Day is a little less than a week away, and students at one area school are already getting ready.

Students at St. Anthony’s School in Des Moines made cards this week. But, these aren’t for friends and family, these are valentines for victims. They also collected items like toys, food and other goodies to put in decorated boxes.

The students gave the valentines to families who lost loved ones in violent crimes this year at a special celebration of life mass Friday morning.

Channel 13’s Megan Reuther will share the lesson the students learned from the program on the Channel 13 News at Five Friday.
