Maine Toys for Tots

LEWISTON, MAINE (Lewiston Sun Journal) - Students, staff and families of Lisbon Community School, Philip W. Sugg Middle School and Lisbon High School partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps during the Maine Toys for Tots campaign.

“Student volunteers in the community of Lisbon schools met to decide on projects they wanted to assist with during the school year. In addition to the annual Giving Tree and other projects, students wanted to collect toys during the holidays,” said Monica Millhime, community resource coordinator for Lisbon schools.

“Students started recruiting toys in the community and the word spread quickly. We were contacted by SSgt. Joseph Justice, USMC, in Topsham, to join forces with their annual toy drive. Justice attended a meeting with students to explain the program and delivered collection boxes throughout the schools,” said Millhime.

All schools in the district and the personnel at the superintendent’s office participated. “The donation of new toys was so overwhelming at all three schools and our central office,” said LCS Assistant Principal Ryan Patrie.

A second day for collection was needed due to the additional efforts by Marcia Jolicoeur’s and Maxine Shane’s fourth-grade classes and the LHS Class of 2013.

For more information on projects and partnership opportunities throughout the year, e-mail mmillhime@lisbonschoolsme.org or call 754-0021.
