Bethel students hold toy drive

Bethel-Tate High School students are celebrating the holiday season by collecting toys for needy families.

The toy drive is a community service project conceived and executed by the Bethel-Tate High School student government; they have already collected more than 1,000 toys.

“The toy drive idea came out of our monthly student government meetings,” said president Erin Ballein. “We all decided that we wanted to do something for the Christmas holiday that would benefit others, especially children.”

The Bethel-Tate student government, under the leadership of Ballein, led a very successful canned food drive for the Thanksgiving holiday last month. That success inspired them to try and accomplish even more this Christmas.
