Plum toy drive to conclude Thursday
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 .
