CHICO, Calif. - A Chico State class raised $25,000 for Camp Fire victims.

The agricultural leadership class started with a goal of raising $6,000 but soon beat that mark.

Students bought stuffed animals, blankets and toys for the families. 

"I know that the effect it's had on me has given me a great sense of gratitude," said Sami Guidotti, a student in the leadership class. "I'm hoping when we do deliver the presents that they appreciate the gifts we're giving." 

In addition to the stuffed animals, blankets and toys, a portion of the money went toward gift cards. 

The students will be personally presenting the items and money raised to families affected by the fire next week.
