It's called "Operation for the Next Generation."
   
Six ISU students spent the last two months collecting food, money and winter accessories.
   
On Tuesday, they turned all those donations over to Benjamin Franklin School.
   
The students picked Franklin because its high rate of poverty and free-reduced lunch, and say they hope this makes a difference.
   
"I just hope that they see from our project that anything can be done," said ISU student Takisha Franklin.  "We didn't know how little or how much we were going to have so just actually go for it and do it and just hope for good outcomes."

Fellow student Brittney Earls adds: "Anything is possible."

The donations are helping to stock the Benjamin Franklin campus store, where students can cash in an attendance "paycheck."
   
The school store is always accepting donations from the community.
