The students also collected over 400 Christmas gifts that were donated to the local multi-service center for distribution to needy families. These projects were chosen and organized by the PTA Community Services chairperson, Carol Lin Terhune. Timbercrest Junior High School PTSA collected over $900 in toys and $1,287 in cash during their December Toy and Giving Tree donation drive. All contributions were given to the Bothell Multi-Service Center.
