School Toy Drive Shuts Down Classroom

December 18, 2015

A toy drive in Atmore shut down one classroom. Escambia County High School teacher Tiffany Oliver challenged her students to bring in toys for a local toy drive. She challenged them to donate enough toys to block her classroom door to win a “get out of an assignment” pass. Courtesy photo for, click to enlarge.

    Awesome! How wonderful it is to see kids helping others have gifts this year! Wish I’d had a teacher challenge me like that in school to help the community and work as a team with my other classmates. They’ll find that though the personal incentive for the class as a whole was nice, the act of giving is even better. This experience will encourage them to give again in future. Merry Christmas!

    Thanks for posting this, William!
