MacArthur Students Collect More than 200 ‘Toys for Tots’

Students learn about caring, present toys to Marine reservists.

MacArthur students show off the gifts they brought to donate to the Toys for Tots program as part of an assembly on caring.

It was all about caring during a Character Counts assembly last Thursday at MacArthur Elementary in the North Valley.

The school’s 250 students showed they cared by presenting more than 200 unwrapped gifts -- everything from a skateboard to Barbies -- to two Marine Reservists for the group’s Toys for Tots program.

Principal Agnes LeDoux said that the response from the students was very overwhelming. “We had some kids who brought in three or four toys to put under the tree,” LeDoux said, giving most of the credit for the toy drive to teachers Cheryl McElheney and Kelly Orlovsky.

The two teachers purchased and decorated the tree, which was given to the Carrie Tingley Foundation after the assembly to help brighten the holidays for children forced to spend the holidays in the hospital.
