“Paws to Help Santa Claus” benefits local needy children

Edison and Buckeye Local High Schools teamed up off the court to help collect toys for needy kids in their communities through the “Paws to Help Santa Claus” campaign. The schools had to raise the most toys by the Dec. 7 basketball matchup and the one with the least collected would see their principal don the opponent’s mascot during a game. Edison won the challenge by gathering 274 toys while Buckeye Local collected 152, but the kids were the real winners since the 426 toys will be divided between the districts.
