Green Acres YR Gifts 150 Presents at the Toyota Toy Drive for Big Brothers and Sisters

Green Acres YR students were busy this holiday season with two special Christmas initiatives. The students collected special presents for the Toyota Toy Drive. Their goal was to have 150 unwrapped, new toys under the tree by December 20th. Throughout the month of December YR Elves visited classrooms and made announcements to promote the Toy Drive. The presents will be used by the Big Brothers & Sisters organization. They exceeded their goal and 163 toys were left under the tree and driven off after a delicious pancake breakfast on December 22nd!

The Youth Revolution students were also busy collecting donations from the community for their school Christmas Store. YR students ran the store and helped wrap each present. Student donations from the store totaled $340.00 which was then used to purchase items for a Christmas Cheer Hamper.  The students filled the hamper with food, toys, and other gifts for their "adopted" Christmas Cheer Family.
