November SPirit Project-Firefighter Toy Drive
Our November Spirit Project is partnered with the Lexington Fire Department for their annual Toy Drive. Students are encouraged to bring in a new, unopened toy that will be donated to families in our community (the program does not accept stuffed animals). Please send the gift to school with your student by Thursday, November 14th. The fire department will be coming to our school to collect the donations, and each class will have the opportunity to present their donations to a member of the fire department. Firefighters will be distributing the toys over the holiday season. Thank you for making VPE Shine and bringing smiles to children in need!
