FREDON — The Fredon Elementary School participated in Project Self-Sufficiency’s Season of Hope Toy Drive for the first time and helped collect nearly 400 toys. From new coloring books to beautiful bicycles, the 329 students worked hard to support the cause. The facilitators of the toy drive, fifth-grade teacher Courtney Mitchell and school social worker Kaleigh Ralph, said they 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 1,500 families in the Sussex County area. The organization believes every child deserves to celebrate a happy, joyous holiday. The staff at Fredon is proud that students, preschool through sixth grade, were able to help out in such a drastic way. Fredon hopes to continue the tradition in the future.
