Campus Veterans Club Collecting Toys for Tots
The Penn State DuBois Veterans Club will hold a collection for Toys for Tots on campus at the beginning of December. All members of the community are asked to donate a new, unwrapped toy.
Collection boxes for Toys for Tots will be placed in the campus library and in the Center for Undergraduate Excellence (CUE) from December 5, through December 9. Donations can be made at these locations all week. An additional collection box will also be placed in the Student Union on December 6, and December 7, only.
"As veterans, we want to continue to serve our communities. We felt it was important while we were serving in the military, and it's something we want to continue to do in the veterans club," said Veterans Club Vice President and US Air Force veteran, Dawn Tett.
Toys for Tots is sponsored and organized by the United States Marine Corps. Reserve, and started with the work of one Marine reservist in 1947. According to the program organizers, 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.
