Toys for Tots neighbors

For the second year in a row, Washington junior/senior high school’s Leadership Academy and several National Honor Society members volunteered for Toys for Tots Dec. 9 campaign at Washington Alliance Church. The club of 20 sophomores worked to organize and pack up toys for needy families for the holidays. “The Leadership Academy is sponsored by the Chick-fil-A Foundation to teach today’s students how to be tomorrow’s leaders working on vision and values, servant leadership, team work, innovation, communication and impact projects. We meet monthly and do special projects each December and May. Our goal is to teach our students how to give back and make a difference in their communities,” Washington teacher Devon Strimel said.
