Center High School's Toy Drives
Kaylin Burleson's senior government and economics classes delivered Christmas presents to students at F.L. Moffett.
Burleson, who named the project, "Mr. Haddox's Big Riders Caring/Sharing for Little Riders" after founder and former teacher Archie Haddox, asked teachers at F.L. Moffett for names of students they thought needed a Christmas wish.
The seniors at CHS received only their age and gender. The volunteers delivered to the FLM campus today.
"I had no trouble filling up the 23 names," Burleson said. "In fact my 2nd period class each took a name after I explained. Others then asked if they could just bring a toy and I said sure, so we took the initial wish list today along with those extras.
"I know had FLM sent more names these high school students would have answered the call to help the little ones, and I have to say watching our students engage with the little ones this morning was a blessing for me - they were so kind, caring, and gentle."
