On December 4th, Wells Junior High School health class students and others completed a one-week collection of unwrapped toys to be part of a larger toy collection (a community service project) initiated and spearheaded by an 8th grade student at Middle School of the Kennebunks, Andrea Collin. All of these toys, primarily for ages 4-12, were then packed by Andrea and delivered free of charge by FedEx to children living in shelter conditions this holiday season in Puerto Rico due to Hurricane Maria.

“These students that specifically went above and beyond in communications around the collection, bringing their own toys in, but also encouraging others…have done it with great energy and great kindness,” said WJHS Health Ellen Rodman.
