Ray-Pec High School student Hailey Lucas was awarded a plaque of thanks for raising over $100 for Toys for Tots as part of a school project.
Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.
