AsheBridge Children's Academy Wraps Up Another Successful Toy Drive

AsheBridge Children's Academy of Fuquay-Varina and Apex/Cary is commended for another successful Toys for Tots drive.

Fuquay-Varina, NC, December 13, 2017 --( AsheBridge Children's Academy of Fuquay-Varina and AsheBridge Children's Academy of Apex/Cary are pleased to announce that it was again successful in its partnership with the Toys for Tots Foundation during its recent holiday campaign. Over 100 toys were gathered and delivered to the campaign for distribution to economically disadvantaged children across the area.

The AsheBridge Children's Academy children have spent time in December learning about holiday traditions around the world. In addition to this, they have examined ways that families in our local area celebrate. Through this "learning through discovery and exploration" process, children learned that some families struggle to provide gifts for their families.

A toy drive is a natural extension of this learning process and a way for them to feel like they made a difference in the local area. Families were asked to donate a new unwrapped toy that their children picked out so it would have significance to the child.

As with all of our community projects, the Fuquay-Varina preschool children and the Apex/Cary preschool children were astounded by the results of their collection. This community outreach effort helped the children recognize the needs of others. They continue to learn that even the smallest people can make the biggest difference.
