Plum High School's third annual toy drive concludes Thursday night with Stuff-a-Bus.

Students and staffers will collect new unwrapped toys from 4-8 p.m. at 900 Elicker Road.

They hope to get enough to stuff a school bus full of gifts for local kids in need and the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign.

“We have a goal of 1,000 toys,” Principal Justin Stephans said. “Last year, we were able to collect 993 toys. We set up collection boxes up at every school.”

There will be hot dogs, face painting, popcorn, hot chocolate and more available at the event.

Many district groups such as the Air Force Junior ROTC, Life Skills, Girls' Leaders Association, Students Against Destructive Decisions and its sports teams helped with this year's efforts.

“It brings the entire school community together,” said Stephans.

The school's toy drive began Nov. 16.

More information about it is available on the district's website .

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
