Volunteers distributed gift packs on Dec. 16 and 17 for Northwestern School District’s Toys for Wildcats holiday drive. More than 105 families were helped have a brighter holiday thanks to donations from the community.
This year’s drive included a used clothing room for participants to browse. All leftover used clothing donations were given to the Erie City Mission.
More than 100 students districtwide helped with the effort.
High school Wildcat Ventures students made 30 wooden games for children. High school food science students made loaves of bread for the food packs given to each family. Middle school technology students made trucks and combines. A Northwestern elementary class collected wrapping paper. Albion Future Farmers of America (FFA) members provided poinsettias. High school student council members collected donations at Dollar General.
