OKLAHOMA CITY – Christmas came early for some Oklahoma City elementary school students.

The Oklahoma Junior Chamber of Commerce adopted Pierce Elementary to help make the holidays a little brighter for the kids.

After weeks of collecting donations and shopping, Santa Claus delivered toys, bikes and stuffed animals to the school.

Ulyssa Mata, a second grade student, said, “Our class got notes and we wrote what we wanted and I guess that’s how they knew what we wanted.”

When asked who knew, Mata said, “Santa!”

The organization raised more than $8,500 to deliver goodies to 280 kids at Pierce Elementary.
