Hudson Heroes

A group of four elementary students show the gifts they collected for Grace Place shelter.

Hudson Prairie students work on being heroes through a partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Greater Hudson.

The students work on a problem with a volunteer Kiwanis mentor once a week over a several months to solve the problem.
