Leighton Elves Spread Holiday Cheer
The Leighton School Holiday Elves had another successful giving season. This year 87 (27 families) children from birth - 12th grade were provided toys, books, clothing, socks, underwear, boots, sneakers, blankets, pillows, hygiene products, winter coats, hat and mittens.
They were also provided Big M gift cards, large boxes of food and food bags from Big M. The Leighton School Christmas Project couldn’t have happened without the help of many current and former Leighton Employees. All the food, clothing, toys, and other gifts were gathered through donations from many local organizations, people and businesses.
