Joliet West Holds Toy Drive for Children’s Hospital


Jennifer Galloy, Adviser

Student clubs at Joliet West High School are joining together to host a toy drive for children with cancer. The toy drive is in honor of Joliet West High School teacher Jennifer Galloy’s son, Noah, who is fighting a rare bacterial infection and immune deficiency disorder.

The National Honor Society, Students of Service, No Name Club, Key Club, and Leo Club are supporting Atia’s Project Ladybug Fund which will collect the toys and distribute them to Comer Children’s Hospital in Chicago. The toys will go to children who will be spending the holidays in the hospital fighting cancer and other illnesses.

Donations of new and unwrapped toys can be dropped off in the Joliet West Cafeteria during all lunch periods from now until December 13.
