Mill Creek has collection boxes for Toys for Tots in the Front Office. They will be there until Thursday Dec 2nd to collect toys to help the families in need in St. Johns County this holiday season. If you would like to donate a new unwrapped toy please just place it in the box and it will delivered to the program for distribution to the children. Last year Toys for Tots distributed 13,816 toys to 3,652 children in the St. Johns County area and this year the number of requests have grown. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you would like more information or other ways to donate you can visit www.toysfortots.org.

The MCA community never disappoints when it comes to supporting our veterans!! We were able to rally together and support K9 for Warriors with a check of about $750 in two weeks! Thank you to every person that took a moment to recognize the men and women who have served our wonderful country. Our NJHS is so thankful for the continued generosity.
MCA's National Junior Honor Society is proud to collaborate with K9 for Warriors to give back to the community! All donations go directly to this organization that supports the well being of U.S. Veterans. Please view the brochure for details. Our school is also posting American flags on our school grounds to show the love we share for our veterans.
