Students from Kent Vocational Options and Community Based Occupational Training (KVO & CBOT), a post secondary special education program run by Grand Rapids Public Schools, took the time and energy to remember those less fortunate than themselves this holiday season. While it's always fun to receive special gifts as part of our holiday traditions, students from KVO and CBOT didn't forget to remember the joy of giving as well. Many students and families rose to the challenge and provided new unwrapped toys in addition to cash gifts to donate to the Grand Rapids Toys for Tots charity. This is sure to be a more enjoyable holiday because of the generosity of these students and their families.
