The Newcomerstown High School Student Council recently coordinated an effort to benefit children at Akron Children’s Hospital, just in time for Christmas. Area students and residents were invited to bring a teddy bear to a recent Newcomerstown High School basketball game. They then tossed them onto the court in a "Teddy Bear Toss." School officials posted, "Wow! What a community we live in and what support the NHS Student Council received by our students and community in the first annual NHS Teddy Bear Toss! All of the Teddy Bears that were donated tonight will be dropped off at Akron Children’s Hospital for children at Christmas! Thank you to everyone who donated!"
