Fox Chapel Area students Jessica Klein, Justin Breen and Cassidy Minton are part of the high school’s community outreach club that is hosting a toy drive through Nov. 30, 2018.

Members of the Fox Chapel Area High School’s community outreach club have signed on as Santa’s elves this holiday season.

They are collecting toys through Nov. 30 to be delivered to patients at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

Gifts on the wish list include cards, board games, crafts, art kits, Legos, Barbies and toy cars.

The idea was spearheaded by freshman Cassidy Minton.

“Cassidy came to community outreach with the idea to collect toys for sick kids and the kids all wanted to help,” student advisor Rachel Machen said.

Members of the community can donate presents at a collection box in the high school office, 611 Field Club Road.

Toys must be new and in the original packaging.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
