BPA organizes 'Toys for Tots Drive' Nov. 19 to Dec. 3
The Wadena-Deer Creek chapter of Business Professionals of America (BPA) will begin its “Toys for Tots Drive” on Nov. 19.
Students in grades K-6 are being asked to donate new, unwrapped toys which will be distributed to less-fortunate children of families who reside in Wadena County. Collection boxes will be placed in the classrooms for collecting the toys. The project will run from Nov. 19-Dec. 3.
According to BPA member Carrie Nelson the Toys for Tots Drive is “a great way for kids to learn the importance of giving.”
All BPA members are taking part in the project. They include: Jessica Langer, Elise Kallevig, Anna Kraemer, Matthew Quincer, Kylie Lupkes, Ashley Peters, Marissa Jahnke, Tabetha Baker, Maddy Hinojos, Carrie Nelson, and Danyel Post.
BPA advisor, Nancy Peterson, said the Toys for Tots Drive is such a worthwhile program for her BPA students.
“It is our goal to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to the less-fortunate children in Wadena County,” said Peterson.
