When Pine-Richland students stuffed five buses full of toys in 2012, it certainly wasn't the first time. These videos show years past when students from Pine-Richland High School, Pine-Richland Middle School and Eden Hall Upper Elementary School joined forces to collect toys and deliver them to 96.1 KISS FM Morning Freak Show DJs Mikey and Big Bob at Miracle Mile Shopping Center in Monroeville. The Morning Freak Show sponsors a yearly "Stuff A Bus" drive to collect for Toys for Tots.
