The holiday season is a time for giving and spreading joy, and that's exactly what students at South City Academy did this year. With the help of our school community, they were able to collect over 300 toys for children spending the holidays at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
The students, who are a part of Bloom Mentoring Group, took on the project to give back to the community and spread holiday cheer. They organized toy drives, held fundraisers, and even reached out to local businesses for donations. Through their hard work and determination, the group collected an impressive number of gifts through the toy drive – 300!
On December 19th, the students and mentors got to experience the joy of giving firsthand as they delivered the gifts to the hospital. They were greeted with smiles and gratitude from the staff and patients, and it was clear that their efforts had made a real impact. After the delivery, the group celebrated their hard work with a field trip to the City Museum.
