The annual Toys for Tots drive is kicking off at Central, Merancas, Levine, Harper and Cato campuses the week of November 3, 2016, and running through December 1, 2016! Service-Learning, Student Life, Rotaract Clubs, and Phi Theta Kappa have come together to sponsor this annual toy drive campaign in conjunction with United States Marine Corps to provide gifts to children in need during this holiday season. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
All you need to do to participate is to donate a small gift and we will make sure that these are given to the Toys for Tots to help brighten the holidays over 7 million children throughout the United States.
Please consider picking up an extra gift this season to donate to this wonderful organization, or feel free to donate a few dollars to help purchase gifts. All donations can be dropped off at the Service-Learning Center, Overcash 257 from 9am-5pm, or to the Student Life / Service-Learning Center at your individual campus. Please make sure that all gifts are unwrapped and are turned into our donation areas prior to noon on Thursday, Dec. 1.
If you have any questions, please contact your service-learning representative:

Please note: The Toys for Tots campaign officially ends on Dec. 1, which will be our final pick up. If we receive any items that Toys for Tots cannot accept or late donations, Service-Learning will share all donations with another local non-profit that we work closely with, Birthday Blessings in Matthews, NC, an agency that provides birthday parties and gifts for children in need.
