Everybody Gets Involved In Toys For Tots

WZZM

We at 100.5 The River, have teamed with WZZM13 this year in Toys For Tots, and we couldn’t be prouder to be a  part of a campaign to make sure that all children in need will have some toys from Santa this Christmas.

We have gotten so much help from all corners of West Michigan, people, groups, and companies getting together to collect new, unwrapped toys for kids.  Even schools are getting involved.  Many High Schools and Middle Schools in the area have gotten involved, as well.

In Wyoming, the students at Godwin Heights Middle School said they wanted to participate.  You see, 80 percent of students at Godwin Heights Middle School qualify for Toys for Tots.  So,to help, the seventh and eighth grade classes recently raised more than $800 through a penny drive. Pretty amazing!  Yesterday, eight students joined two teachers to pick out the toys they will donate.

Diane Jelke, a physical education teacher, came up with a creative way to inspire her students to give.

“We were kind of slow the first three days [of the drive].  So I offered up to my eighth grade students that I would sell a week of laps for $3, and the money came pouring in,” she says.

Last year, Godwin Heights Middle School collected about $500 for toy donations.

Way to go, kids.  You really have the “holiday” spirit!
