Guam - Upon hearing the news that culprits managed to steal students' Thanksgiving lunch at J.Q. San Miguel Elementary School over the weekend, a few individuals came forward to help. Acting Principal Rosella Campos says she's thankful for the outpouring of generosity from those in the community.

"I haven't seen so much turkey in my life," she said. "We have a lot to share tomorrow and I just want to thank everyone who had donated and I hope that someday we can give back what the community has given us."

Donors even arrived at the Toto campus before school even began to give cash to pay for what was stolen and turkeys were even dropped-off today.

In the meantime, students told KUAM News they can't wait to eat a full Thanksgiving meal.
