Toy drive

Dec. 13, 2019-- Fifth grade Peer Leadership Ambassadors from across the district kicked off the month of December by facilitating and participating in a Holiday Toy Drive in partnership with RWJBarnabas Health and Community Medical Center. In the spirit of giving back to the community and helping others, continuing the leadership work done during the summer of 2019 under the theme of “paying it forward,” leaders were tasked with promoting the event, collecting the toys, and organizing them for pickup.

This week, representatives from RWJBarnabas Health and the Salvation Army visited Beachwood Elementary to meet with Peer Leaders and collect toys from each of the district’s elementary schools across the district. All in all, over 500 toys were collected.
