Toys for Tots event will be broadcast live on Fox 4
We are now just eight days away from Arlington ISD’s first-ever Toys for Tots event at the Dr. Marcelo Cavazos Center for Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA).
Next Wednesday, Nov. 29, we hope to have lines of cars snaking through our facility from 5 to 10:30 p.m. with people donating toys for children who might otherwise not have anything this holiday season.
There will be Arlington ISD student performances, a visit from Santa and a live broadcast throughout the evening on Fox 4. While the Arlington ISD is hosting the event, anyone from the area is welcome to drop off a toy or donate.
The student performances will begin with elementary students in the 5 to 6:30 p.m. window followed by junior high and high school performances. Weather permitting, all student performances will be outside the CVPA. Donations will be accepted anytime during the event.
We’re asking everyone who is donating to enter and exit on Sanford Street.
“We’re very excited that this is happening,” said Aaron Perales, the Arlington ISD executive director of engagement, equity and access. “We’ve had great support from our campuses, our student organizations and our community partners. The weather looks good as of now, too. We hope this is the start of a wonderful annual event.”
