3rd Graders Organize Toy Drive For Classmate
By Hope Bidegainberry on October 8, 2019
There’s an eight-year-old near Knoxville named Daniel Hunt who lost ALL his stuff in a fire last month. But his friends in third grade came up big for him.
After it happened, they were all extra nice . . . held doors for him . . . and hung out with him at recess to take his mind off it.
And the whole time, they somehow managed to keep THIS a secret.
After the fire, they started planning a toy drive with their teacher. Then on Friday, they surprised him with a MOUNTAIN of new toys to replace the ones he lost.
When he walked into class, they yelled “surprise.” And their desks were covered with board games, LEGOS, stuffed animals, a remote-control car, and dozens of other toys.
There’s a video of it. And at first, it looks like he doesn’t realize they’re all for him. Then his teacher says they’re HIS toys . . . and he asks the whole class for a group hug.
His teacher says it’s a great example of what a big heart he has. Most kids would have just ripped into the toys. But he wanted a hug first.
A third grade class from Tennessee surprised a classmate with new toys on after he lost all of his possessions in a house fire. http://bit.ly/30Gt4Qw
