It was the annual parade of the toys at Pleasant Valley Elementary School. Students and staff collected over 1,000 toys with 850 of them donated to the Pocono Marines of Marine Corps League (PMMCL) Detachment 492's Toys for Tots campaign. All the students lined up to drop a toy in the waiting sacks. Here Sharon Baker's first-grade class each drop a toy in bags held by, Iliana Dilger, a volunteer and Ray Fitzpatrick, a member of the PMMCL. Principal Joshua Krebs said the school donated the rest of the toys to families in need in the PVE and Pleasant Valley Intermediate schools.
