A toy drive at Washington Elementary School culminates with a toy giveaway Friday.

The giveaway for Washington Elementary school family and friends runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the school’s gymnasium and features cookies, cocoa, Santa and more.

It is the first year for the toy drive, organized by teachers Denise Overweg and Megan Deal. Students were asked to collect toys to giveaway and they responded in a big way, collecting enough toys to block a large chunk of Deal’s classroom.

The toy drive also received a boost from Wal-Mart, which ended up donating about $400 in items for the drive.
