For the fifth consecutive year, Delphi Academy 6th graders volunteered at the Home Church, sorting toys for the Campbell Community Toy Program. Ms. Manpreet's middle school students gathered up the toy donations from Delphi Academy and carried them over to the Home Church to add them to the growing mounds of donations from the Santa Clara County fire stations and the Campbell community.
In under an hour, they sorted hundreds of toys for families in need this holiday season.
"It's always great to have them over," said a Home Church director. "They are really fast and hard working!"
"They can really sort the toys quickly," added Kimi de Leonibus, Delphi Associate Headmistress, "They're the right age to know what age child would like which toys and they're pretty good at staying focused on the job and not stopping to play with all this bounty."
During the month of December, the students return and continue sorting toys as more donations roll in. The school also creates a craft booth at the Toy Distribution event, where kids can make ornaments and holiday decorations while their parents sneak away to pick up the toys and play Santa. Delphi students and faculty volunteer at the booth and help connect families to their toys.
"I'm very happy to see the students actively involved and helping in the community," said Headmistress Marcy Green. "It's important for them to contribute and discover the joy of giving back."
