Hoglan Caring Project collects toys for Salvation Army

Holgan Elementary students and staff worked together to collect toys and raise money for the Salvation Army toy drive as part of their annual caring project.

Students and staff brought in toys to donate and also rang bells with the Salvation Army red kettles before and after school each day Dec. 5-16 collecting donations. A kettle was also placed at the Center Street Dairy Queen. Over the course of two weeks Hoglan collected $450 from the kettles, all of which was used to purchase more toys. This was $100 more than raised in 2010.

The toys were proudly displayed at the Hoglan Holiday Music program, which was held Monday at the MHS/Community Auditorium.

This is the third year Hoglan has supported the Salvation Army Toy Drive.
