Students at Mountain Elementary collected toys for the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau in the school's first Christmas Toy Drive.

The campaign was a success, resulting in 160 toys either donated or purchased from cash donations.

The students are proud that their efforts will make Christmas special for many girls and boys in our community.

The school wishes to thank Buckerfield's in Abbotsford for providing a generous discount to Mountain's Grade 5 leadership students, allowing them to make maximum use of the money donated to purchase additional toys for the drive.

The kindness and caring demonstrated by the students and their families has ensured that the Christmas Toy Drive will be an annual event at Mountain Elementary.
