Over the course of two weeks, United Township was able to collect a variety of different toys for the Toys for Tots fundraiser. About $1,000 worth of toys were donated to the cause. Student Council and faculty members contributed around $1,170 as well. Farm and Fleet helped the Toys for Tots campaign by donating $1,500 in toys bringing the total amount collected to $3,670.

This event occurs around Christmas time each year¬†and is always a benefit for the community members in need. Mr. Burklund, United Township driver’s education teacher, led the Toys for Tots fundraiser and enjoys helping out the people around the community each year.
