Every year, the students of Crossing Cooperative Nursery School in Washington Crossing participate in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots drive.
It was only appropriate to kick off this year’s campaign on the nationwide initiative, #GivingTuesday on Dec. 3. The toy collection continued through the school’s annual Jingles and Jammies family event on Dec. 6.
The children and their families donned their most festive pajamas and gathered together for an evening of crafts, hot chocolate and cookies, stories and reindeer songs. It was a lively evening of family, community and the strength of coming together to help others, as boxes upon boxes were filled with toys.
