Wild Rose Student Council Helps with Big Hearts of Fox Valley Toy Drive

Student Council will be aiding our families in collecting toys for Big Hearts of Fox Valley for the holiday toy drive. Toys should be new and unwrapped. Student Council members will be helping collect toys outside at the front circle and the bus drop off on the following dates:

  • Friday, November 6th
  • Wednesday, November 11th

This is an opportunity for all of our families to drop-off and remain in their vehicles (in-person or remote).

Unwrapped toys can also be dropped off anytime in the front foyer of Wild Rose, if you need to drop off at a different day or time.
