LIVINGSTON, NJ — Heritage Middle School (HMS) students recently helped grant wishes for children in need this holiday season by participating in the Livingston Youth and Community Service’s (SYLS) annual “Toys for Tots” toy drive.

The HMS student council and members of the HMS Builders’ Club organized the collection effort, which resulted in boxes full of playthings, from dolls and trucks to board games and books.

Shown with the dozens of items that were generously donated by the HMS community are student council members and Builders' Club officers Bobin Park, Madison Peloquin, Hailey Bhatt, Tanirika Singh, Jake Ferrans, Jamie Levitt and Vera Ahluwalia.
