Student Council is just one of many extracurricular activities’ students participate in at DCC.
The purpose of student councils throughout the country is to develop leadership skills, create
community awareness and to promote school spirit.
According to President Weston Youngdahl, “Toys for Tots was chosen as a project because we know
Covid-19 has caused people to lose their jobs and it will be hard for families to buy toys for
their kids.” Vice-President Kaden Bush added, “We want to make the year better for other
children. It has been a tough year.”
Nelson said, “Our collection will begin on Monday, November 16 – Wednesday, November 25. Due to the
uncertainty of schools being open past Thanksgiving, we decided to assist Robin Clark, Coordinator, Clearfield
County Toys for Tots and the Sgt. Wm. L. Dixon Detachment #289 and hit the ground running in our collection
The Clearfield County Toys for Tots started collecting toys on October 15 and will continue until December 1,
2020. To fill an online request form, go to www.toysfortots.org or call (814)761-0393 or (814)577-8778.

change kids are making to improve relationships everywhere.”
