Toys for Burmese Refugees

"Forty children who are refugees started their Christmas celebrations a little early on Dec. 17," reported Gretchen Becker in The Indianapolis Star's "North Indy" section today.

"Most of the children are from Burma, attend Nora Elementary School in Washington Township and will be observing their first Christmas in the country, said Milana Mileva, the school's English as a Second Language teacher.

"To make them feel welcome and to help struggling families, American Funds employees, who regularly volunteer at the Far-Northside school, donated clothes, toys, books and school supplies, and food for the children and their families."

Until it's taken down, there's also a photo gallery of the event here.
