The Studnet Council at each donor school runs the collection with the assistance of a teacher who overseas the club and our point of contact. The Student Council runs the collection by placing the provided collection bins in the front lobby, hanging the TOSS banner and rising awareness about the upcoming collection. TOSS then collects the collected supplies at the donor schools for delivery to the recipient schools.
Susie Rivas - Secretary at Olive Elementary, "I cannot tell you how much this donation to our school means to our students and staff. The kids were still excited at recess and were sharing their experience with other students. We appreciate the work that you are doing - TOSS is an inspiration to our students and an example of giving back to the community and serving the underprivileged."
