St. Mary Immaculate Religious Education Program and School in Plainfield, IL. joined together this Advent season to collect toys for the United States Marine Corps Annual “Toys for Tots” Collection. As families attended their child’s Christmas and Advent Programs, they first dropped off a donation for the drive to help spread some Christmas cheer to those families in need.” Pictured with the Marines are students Lucy and Aidan. This is one of many pickups they did at our campus.
