Students at Stover Middle School are hoping to help provide a more joyous holiday season for families in Elgin by joining forces with the Elgin Police Department (EPD).

For the past seven years, the EPD has hosted a Christmas round up and Caring Hands to serve children and senior citizens in the Elgin Community. 

New toys and canned food items are collected then distributed  into packages to help families who have requested and received assistance. Senior citizens in the community receive fruit baskets.

The students at Stover are excited to take part in this year’s collection.

“We are collecting toys and food and going to be doing this for our local community to help out people. We know  there are a lot of people who don’t have a lot. They deserve something. We have collected food and toys and are still trying to reach our goal,”

Stover Middle School student Mckenna Phillips said,

“Our goal is to have more than enough.”

Stover Middle School student Braydon Castles has already donated six items including board games and trading cards for boys and girls.

“We are going to give toys so the kids have something new to play with. People should get involved, we are fortunate to have what we have so it’s good to give back.”

Those who would like to donate to Elgin’s Toy Round Up are asked to donate new toys, with tags attached. Monetary donations are also accepted and will qualify for being tax deductible. Call Elgin Town Hall at 438-2362 for more information.
