‘Tis the season of giving and nowhere was that more evident than at the Family House shelter on Friday, December 19.

That’s because Dr. Romules Durant, CEO/Superintendent of Toledo Public Schools, joined members of the groups he founded – Young Men of Excellence and Young Women of Excellence – to drop off 150 boxes of donated items to Family House, 669 Indiana Ave.

The students in the two groups spearheaded a drive that collected FIVE THOUSAND items that will be used for the families at the shelter so they can have a brighter holiday season.
