Some Birmingham elementary students got into the holiday spirit this week, after Beverly Elementary fourth and fifth graders helped decorate the "toy chest" that will be used to donate dozens of toys to the Bottomless Toy Chest. Beverly students are collecting toys, games and art activity kits through Friday for the Bottomless Toy Chest, the Birmingham-based non-profit that donates toys and games to children with cancer.
