Toy Drive

When a Toy Drive is held, students collect toys and deliver them during a field trip to the Wayfinder Family Services Junior Blind of America in Baldwin Hills. Palms students have personally presented hundreds of toys to the foundation's special education students.

We are proud of our students' generosity, of their willingness to think of the needs of others, and for the way they give back to the community during the busy holiday season.

2015 Toy Drive and Junior Blind Field Trip

Fifteen 7th graders and one 8th grader accompanied Mr. Reynolds and Mrs. Glickman to the Junior Blind of America in Baldwin Hills, to distribute holiday gifts collected in Mr. Reynolds' classroom.

Palms students personally presented nearly 200 toys to the foundation's special education students!

Afterwards, Debbie McBeth, director for special events, conducted a tour of the facility, where students learned about the foundation's work in helping newly blind and congenitally blind children and adults transition to more independent lifestyles.

Palms Middle School has held Toy Drives since 2010.

Toys were first delivered to the children at the Junior Blind of America campus in West Los Angeles in 2013.

The Junior Blind has been helping children, youth and adults who are blind, visually impaired or multi-disabled since 1953.
