Students at St. Benedict Catholic School in the south end shipped more than 1500 toys to the Salvation Army by school bus. These toys will be wrapped by the Salvation Army and distributed to families ahead of December 24th.
The toys were collected as part of the TD/Salvation Army Toy Drive.
Students have been participating in this drive for five years and in that time frame, a total of more than seven thousand toys have been contributed.
Chaplain Rob Pappin and Principal Laura Kuzenko feel it is always heartwarming to see the students take on such an initiative and load up the school Christmas tree.
Money was also collected. That money was turned over to the Salvation Army for families requiring food items over the course of the Christmas break.
