Above: Altoona Middle School seventh-graders Zoey Peters, wearing red, and Josie Rondestvedt, in black, pass hygiene products in a chain Wednesday to the high school, where they will be stored. The effort by sixth- through eighth-graders was part of Be Positive Day at the middle school. The products will be given to the school district’s Care Closet, which provides clothing and hygiene products to students and families who may need them.
