Each week we like to say thanks to school organizations that are giving back to the community.

This week, WCCO-TV focused on the teens behind Woodbury High School’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The group chose an obvious charity to support: Joseph’s Coat in St. Paul.

“We just take the warmth and energy of our show and we try to use that to share the happiness with the community,” said Woodbury junior Angela Yang.

Last time the production asked the audience for donations: They got $600.

But this time, they want more.

And they can get more with the $500 that goes along with the Community Spotlight Award given to them this week by WCCO’s Matt Brickman.

Dante Leyva, a Woodbury senior, said the musical is family-friendly and has something for everyone to enjoy.

“The whole Joseph’s Coat fundraiser is just another little incentive for people who want to give back to their community,” he said.

If you’d like to see a performance of the show, see the school’s website for details.

Thanks to Sieben, Grose, Von Holtum and Carey for helping us with Community Spotlight.
