This year the National Honor Society will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters.

We will be collecting toys from Monday, December 2 to Monday, December 16. Send them to school with your student or drop them off at the school office. For more information, read our blog about the DSA Toys for Tots Toy Drive.
