Students at several Granbury ISD schools recently held fundraising and toy collection drives to benefit Hood County Christmas for Children, a local charitable organization that provides Christmas gifts and bicycles to needy kids in the community.
Mambrino School led all campuses with over $3,800 in money raised. The school’s project included selling messages with die-cut snowmen as well as ornaments, garland, and clay crosses and candle holders. Students also collected hundreds of toys.
“Without the hard work of Granbury ISD students and staff, we could not accomplish our goal of providing Christmas to families that cannot afford gifts,” said Norma Wright, who serves as president of the organization. “By helping with the collection of toys and the raising of money, these kids learn about community responsibility. They play a big part in making Christmas for Children successful.”
