Gladstone eighth-grader completes annual toy drive
Kraxberger eighth-grader Kylie Totten developed her leadership skills at a young age, leading her own toy drive for children receiving care at Doernbecher Hospital. She started the toy drive in 2012 after spending weeks at Doernbecher recovering from a ruptured appendix at age 5.
This year Totten gathered over 300 donated toys, which she delivered to the hospital in time for Christmas. Donors included Townsend Farms, Re/Max Equity Group, Taylor Made Labels, 4B Logistics, Dragonberry Produce, First American and others.
