John Hopkins Elementary students hold toy drive

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson elementary school was filled with toys Tuesday.

They will soon be distributed to kids in need, through the United States Marines "Toys For Tots" program.  John Hopkins Elementary School hosted the toy drive, asking for new  and unwrapped toys as christmas gifts for needy children.  The school spent the last three weeks collecting more than four-hundred toys.

"We are just elated the students are taking the opportunity to not only look out for themselves, but for the benefit of other students and families that may be less fortunate this season," says Stephen Johnson, Assistant Principal.

The Toys for Tots campaign coordinates with an effort this month at John Hopkins to promote "Caring" among students.
