The Barnum Woods Student Council teamed up with members of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve to collect Toys for Tots this holiday season.
Earlier this month, the Barnum Woods Elementary School community collected new, unwrapped toys, which were later distributed by the Marine Corps to underprivileged children. Both Student Council leaders and members of the Marine Corps spoke about giving back to people in need.
Through the collection, students learned about the importance of demonstrating kindness by helping others. Additionally, one of the Marines surprised their son after they picked up the collection.
