The Rockenbaugh Elementary PTO is working directly with Bastrop ISD in central Texas to help the children affected by September’s destructive wildfires. Many children in Bastrop ISD lost their homes and belongings. Donations of food, clothes and school supplies have poured in from across the state.
To help fire victims, Rockenbaugh is hosting a Toy Drive through Friday, October 7, 2011. Everyone is encouraged to bring stuffed animals, dolls, action figures, puzzles and games to donation bins placed inside school hallways. Collection organizers ask that the toys be new and cost $10 or less. In an effort to boost participation, the Rockenbaugh PTO is offering a popcorn party to the grade level with the most donations.
The RES PTO is also coordinating and funding delivery of the donations once collection is complete. All questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
