ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) -

A St. Martin teen wants to bring holiday joy to children who don't have much. Brianna Ladnier is heading up a toy drive for seven needy families in the St. Martin School District.

Ladnier is the president of the FBLA for St. Martin High School, as well as the state organization.

She is collecting toys at the high school, while other chapters across the state are contributing monetary donations. She hopes to raise $1,000 and is just a few hundred dollars short of that goal.

Trang Pham Bui will tell you all about Ladnier’s quest to give back tonight. Look for the story on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
