Iona Preparatory School High School Students Teamed Up to Collect Toys for Local Head Start

Iona Preparatory School high school students teamed up with Second Chance Toys and Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Scarsdale to run a toy collection benefiting WestCOP Head Start preschool programs throughout Westchester and Putnam counties. 

The students at Iona Prep are in their junior year and select organizations to work with as part of their junior service project. The students thought that working with an elementary school would prove to be more successful since these families with younger children have the toys!

Immaculate Heart of Mary families donated nearly 300 toys!  WooHooo!!

“By simply cleaning up a used toy we were able to put smiles on other children during this holiday season.” said Anthony T, one of the students participating in the toy collection.
