Fort Elementary received during their monthly assembly.
 
Giant Tiger treated the students to new toys including soccer balls and hoola hoops, along with over $500 in gift cards.
 
"It's incredible, it was a total surprise to me and it just adds to the community spirit," said principal Sandra Sorochin. "They're going to be really excited because they know that they have a chance at winning those in some of the activities we do this year."
 
That wasn't the only charitable act during the assembly. Every early dismissal on Wednesday, staff can pay $2 to wear their jeans, $500 was raised and donated to the Fort Saskatchewan Furniture Bank.
 
"We're really exited about that because we heard through various parents and Facebook that they would appreciate any donations so we thought that was a good one to support."
 
The Furniture Bank is putting the money towards a storage shed for the overwhelming amount of donations they're receiving.
