Students at FJM are actively collecting gifts and clothing that will be donated to local children this holiday season.

During the past few weeks students at Frank J Mitchell Elementary School have been participating in the FJM Care Project. This  is an annual project, where for one month, students will collect new toys, clothing, school supplies or anything a child would need or enjoy.

Last year over 350 items were collect by students and donated to the Toys for Tots program, which provides gifts to local children in need. FJM Students are hoping everyone will be as generous this year and are excited to be giving back to the community!
