Third Graders Surprise Classmate With Toys After His House Burned Down

A third-grader at Philadelphia Elementary School in Tennessee was reduced to tears of happiness after an act of generosity and kindness from his classmates. Daniel Hunt lost all of his belongings in a house fire a few weeks ago, and his classmates decided to help out. They secretly organized a toy drive to replace everything their friend lost.

“It was amazing to witness the excitement these third-grade kids had while sneaking in toys. The entire week, they couldn’t love him enough,” Kelly Jones, a counselor at the school, told ABC News. “People were holding doors for him, getting his pencil ready for him each morning, taking his chair down from the desk for him to sit in and swarming him at recess.”

After they had collected the toys and brought them to school, Daniel’s teachers sent him on an errand while they prepared the classroom.

When he came back into the classroom, he was left speechless when he saw the toys piled high on the desks. Instead of rushing straight to the toys, Daniel called all his friends together for a giant group hug as teachers and the kids started shedding tears of happiness.

“Every adult and even a few students had tears swelling up in their eyes who were in the room to witness this,” Jones said. “I feel extremely blessed to have witnessed the pure love and giving from the hearts of the third-grade students at my school last week.”

The school district shared photos of Daniel smiling and hugging his friends after receiving all the new toys.

Last week, one of our Warriors, Daniel Hunt, lost all of his belongings in a house fire. His 3rd-grade teachers and classmates started a secret toy drive for him to replace the toys he lost. He received the toys today, and he was so surprised and thankful! This is certainly one of the #37846Reasons we love PES! #LoveItLiveIt#WarriorNation
