In recent weeks, School District 308 elementary and junior high students, local businesses and members of the community have donated thousands of toys and bicycles to families having trouble purchasing presents for their children over the holiday season.
Students and members of the community were invited to donate new toys and other goods that would be distributed to families who either provided their information to the school district, or were recommended.
The list of families was passed along to the Oswegoland Optimist Club, which divided up the toys, as well as more than 2,000 pounds of food for a holiday meal, and distributed the goods over the weekend.
More than 6,400 toys, 2,000 pounds of food and 105 bicycles were donated this year to 76 families and more than 200 children.
