At Hampton Elementary this winter Mrs.Winkler and Mrs.Panday organized a coat and toy drive during December. The toy donations go to Hampton families in need first and then they go to homeless shelters.The coat donations go to the Student Support Network. Hampton has done collections like this before.
“It’s the first official one involving the Hampton community, but Mrs. Dyer and I have done smaller toy collections in past years,” said Mrs. Panday, the Community Outreach Committee for the PTA.
People at Hampton think it's really important to give back to the community.
“We do not want any child to feel like the holidays missed them, and want all parents to see their child's face lit up with excitement and joy,” Mrs. Panday said.
