Washington Elementary School’s student council is getting started on its Christmas list early, with a donation of materials to Trash to Treasure’s annual Operation Christmas Child.
“They told all the classrooms all the different things to bring, and they brought them from home over the past two weeks,” said Washington School Guidance Counselor and Student Council Advisor Terri Thiessen.
The students brought in books, toys, clothes, hats, towels, toiletries and school supplies, which will be distributed to schoolkids in less-fortunate areas.
“It’s wonderful how the children have shared their toys with kids in other countries that have nothing,” said Trash to Treasure Chairperson Patsy Magelssen.
The students celebrated the donations Monday morning with a pizza party.
