Freedom student Dylan Mapston has challenged Freedom Elementary school to a toy drive to collect 1,000 toys for Arizonans for Children.  Arizonans for Children is a non-profit organization that helps provide numerous types of services to foster children in the Phoenix area.  Dylan will be providing a pizza party to the class that donates the most toys from November 13th through December 8th.  For more information about how your donation is helping to make a difference in the lives of so many in our community, you may follow Dylan on Facebook and Twitter @KeepersCare.

PLEASE READ THIS GREAT STORY BY KPTV HERE.


A tv station out of Portland, Oregon featured 12-year-old Dylan Mapston.

"Dylan Mapston is a huge soccer fan from Arizona, and when his aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer, he started playing games wearing a pink jersey.

"Wanting to do more, he started collecting teddy bears and toys for children with cancer and other illnesses to comfort them, starting a program called Keepers Care for Kids.

"Mapston flew up for the Thorns and Timbers games over the weekend, and collected a lot of toys, teddy bears and blankets outside the games.

"On Monday, Mapston and his father dropped off the donations at Doernbecher, the same day his cousin received treatment."

WAY TO GO DYLAN! WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!
