Old toys get new life

| December 14, 2011 | 0 Comments

Fourth-graders Madison Dillon, left, and Natalie Wheeler clean donated toys in their classroom Dec. 12 at Nativity of Mary School in Bloomington. The school’s two fourth-grade classes collected used toys from other students to donate to the MORE Multicultural School for Empowerment, which serves many new immigrants and refugees in St. Paul’s McDonough neighborhood. The 30 students spent the day cleaning the toys, making sure all the pieces were included and installing batteries. They packed the toys in boxes and loaded them into a truck and minivan Dec. 13 for delivery. Parents of the MORE students will be able to pick out toys Dec. 15.
