The student council of WMAES led a very robust Toys for Eagles program this year. They wanted to make sure that every child and family in the community had a memorable holiday. Toys for Eagles is an internal support program that offers WMAES families the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with a little extra help. This is the first year where sponsors were connected (anonymously) with families in need to buy specific items identified.

Each family was given cards labeled sponsor or in need. These were filled in and then returned to the front office where the student council advisor divided up and paired families together. 

The response was overwhelming and the need was bigger than expected. Staff members also stepped up and donated generously so that all of the wishes could be met.
