Webster boy helps other children with birthday toy drive

6 Dec


Here’s a very nice story for your Friday morning.

Skylar Jones, a first grader at Plank North Elementary School, was recently featured on 13 WHAM News for doing a wonderfully kind thing.

When he was still only 5 years old, Skylar was visiting a sick family member in the hospital, and started to wonder about how children there got toys. He learned about Gary the Happy Pirate’s annual toy collection effort, and decided that when his birthday rolled around, he wanted to donate all of the toys he received to Gary, and ultimately to the kids in the hospital.

Click here to meet Skylar and see the story that ran on Channel 13.
