Toys for Tots Nets 888 Gifts
Hans Herr student Riley Moore has collected more than 100 gifts each year for Toys or Tots since he's been a student at L-S. He's planning the same this year - go Riley!
Santa joined a group of United States Marine Corps (USMC) veterans, Pioneer Interact students, and District staff on a building to building toy collection caravan on Friday, December 2. All in all, the team collected 888 toys from the High School, Martin Meylin, Hans Herr, Lampeter Elementary, and the District Administration Building.
Santa's biggest helper by far was 4th grader Riley Moore, who alone was responsible for collecting 170 toys! Riley prepared for Toys for Tots all year by purchasing toys whenever possible. He had some help his fans like Kohl's and the Sharon Gingras Charitable Fund. Riley also earned money through lemonade stands and other enterprises. Santa says he's one to watch.
The 2016 Toys for Tots campaign ran from Monday, November 21, through collection day. The event is coordinated each year by dedicated second grade teacher Karen Taraborelli. She works hand in hand with the Marine Toys for Tots crew each year to bring toys to local boys and girls.
Thanks to all who donated!
