AJHS is partnering again with Operation Homefront to brighten military families’ holiday season. All toys collected will go to ARKANSAS children whose parents are currently serving our nation. Last year the AJHS student body set the bar high by donating just over $6500. This year we have set a goal of $7500.
Toys will be collected between November 12th-December 4th
Toy donations MUST be new, unopened, unwrapped and appropriate for children ages preschool-18.
The Toy Drive will involve a competition between 7th and 8th grade, in which the winning grade will receive an IN-SCHOOL party with refreshments on December 13.
Toys will be collected in 4th period classes.
This year we are also having a day to wear pajamas to raise money for the purchase of toys for the drive. Students can pay at least $1 to wear pajamas to school on November 22nd. Money can be paid in the library before or after school or during lunch.
Thank you in advance for helping us make the Toy Drive our best yet! We look forward to giving back to those men and women who, along with their families, have made sacrifices for the freedom of our country.
