Children at Dan O. Root Elementary School are making Christmas a little brighter for their peers.
A two-week toy drive netted a few hundred toys that the children gave to the Suisun City Fire Department. They will be distributed Wednesday into the community.
The toy drive started in teacher Lisa Christensen’s classroom about 15 years ago and grew to include the whole school. Christensen estimated that over the years, the school has collected about 5,000 toys for the toy drive.
