Albany -- An Albany school collects hundreds of toys for young patients who will spend Christmas in a cancer hospital.

Deerfield Windsor lower school students brought presents for patients at St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis.

Before their Christmas pageant, the students marched forward to donate their presents.

This is the 27th year that Deerfield has donated toys for St. Jude patients. Supporter Joe Farris will take the toys to Memphis. Farris said "This will be my 86th trip to St Jude Hospital. Every time I go up there I see so much progress and so many more cures."

Farris will hand out the toys to the patients Monday.
