‘Tis the season of giving, and there are many wonderful opportunities to give back to our community this time of year. Stover Middle School, Blaney Elementary School, and Dobys Mill Elementary School have partnered with the Elgin Police Department’s Elgin Toy Roundup and Caring Hands project to collect canned goods, toys, books, games, and money for families in need in the West Wateree area.
On Friday, December 14, at 9 a.m., we will host an assembly in Stover Middle School’s gym to display our collections, and present them to Elgin Police Chief Harold Brown, who along with his wife Mrs. Kathy, founded this wonderful project. The assembly is open to the public; it will also stream live on Facebook. Chorus students from all three schools will perform; the Stover Middle School band will perform; kindergarten students from Blaney and Dobys Mill Elementary School will present teddy bears in a teddy bear march; and special guests will also speak.
If you would like to donate canned goods, toys, games, or books, you may drop them off in the main office of each school. The deadline to donate is December 13. All toys, games, and books must be new.
