Kids Giving to Kids at Glen-Worden makes the holiday brighter for children at the City Mission

Teacher with two students showing a car filled with donations Glen-Worden students and staff exhibited the true meaning of the holidays – they collected toys for needy children who they will probably never meet.
In lieu of giving a gift to their teachers, students were asked to bring in a gift that would be donated to needy children at the City Mission in Schenectady.

Students also decorated a paper ornament and give it to their teachers to them know that a gift had been donated in their honor.
