The holiday season is near, and that means our big toy drive and community event is fast approaching.

This is the fifth year Mansfield ISD will be hosting the Toys for Tots event, which takes place on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the MISD Center for the Performing Arts. It's a family event where the community comes out to donate toys to children in need and participate in fun activities.

Willie Brown Elementary is collecting any toys that our community would like to donate. For every toy donated, your WBE student will receive a House Point!
