Warsaw Community Schools challenged each school in the district to donate new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots, an annual service project for the schools. The WCS bus drivers gathered up the toys from each school and WCS Central Office on Friday, Dec. 5.
WCS is proud to announce they gathered 1,145 toys.
WCS also received a call from local radio station, Willie 103.5, stating if the toys were taken to Walmart on Friday evening, a sponsor, R & B Car Company, would match the number of toy donations.
As a result, WCS was able to donate 2,290 toys.
Jason Pogue of Willie 103.5 shared, “This is the largest number of toys we have collected. Just the week long Willie 103.5 Toy Drive donations totaled 6,620.”
WCS would like to thank the staff, students, and parents for their donations to give back to their community and fulfilling dreams at this holiday time.
