Junior Achievement Students Pay it Forward

JA programs teach students the importance of philanthropy, and these lessons were put into action in November by a very generous group of JA BizTown students from Dallas Elementary School.  Students arrived at JA BizTown with dozens of toys for needy children as part of the Toys for Tots program.  Our toy box was overflowing, and thanks to these students' generosity, local children will have a happy holiday!

Pictured below are fifth grade students Emily Iannucci-Furman, Will Snowdon, Christian Shedlock and Chloe Dudick.
