As she does every year, Ms. Francis in Room 107 is asking HMCRA families to bring new, unwrapped toys for children 0-17 (teens love gift cards!) to morning circle of the big toy barrel outside the office. Ms. Francis will bring the toys to a local Mattress Firm, which will distribute them to foster children in need this holiday season.
