2015 BHS Toys for Tots Campaign
Toy collections have been underway here at Bedford High and will continue untilDecember 18th.  There are collection boxes located in the Library, Counseling Office, Bulldog Corner, the Commons and the Main Entrance.  We are currently just over halfway to our goal of 500 toys with 277 collected so far!

Students and Staff are asked to attached a small slip of paper with
their name to each toy donated.  The names will be entered into prize
raffle drawings to be held next Friday during the Pep Rally!

Last year we collected nearly 400 toys and we are aiming for 500 this
year!  If every student and staff member brought in just 1 toy each we
would triple our goal and have 1500 toys for children and teens in
need!
