Fredon Elementary School participated in Project Self-Sufficiency’s Season of Hope Toy Drive for the first time, and the students worked together to collect nearly 400 toys!  From new coloring books to beautiful bicycles, the 329 students worked hard to support this incredible cause.  The facilitators of the Toy Drive, Fifth Grade Teacher Courtney Mitchell and School Social Worker Kaleigh Ralph, were incredibly impressed with the results, and are proud of their students.  Project Self-Sufficiency’s Season of Hope Toy Drive works to donate thousands of toys to 1500 families from the Sussex County area.  Every child deserves to celebrate a happy, joyous holiday, and the staff at Fredon is proud that their preschool-sixth grade students were able to help out in such a drastic way.  In the future, Fredon hopes to continue the tradition!
 
Gianna Zanni, Alyssa Nagy, Makayla Nagy and Alexa Shotwell are all holding some of the incredible donations that were received at Fredon School for the Season of Hope Toy Drive.
