NSU Community Fills Van with Donations for ‘Toys for Tots’ Holiday Drive

Nova Southeastern University’s 2012 Toys for Tots campaign was a resounding success! The campaign resulted in hundreds of toys being collected for needy boys and girls in our community. The Toys for Tots campaign at NSU began in early November with a special kick-off collection at the Salute to Veterans and Service Members held in the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center.

“This toy drive is another example of the way NSU employees participate in the university’s Community Core Value,” said Regina Schawaroch, Salute to Veterans Committee Chair.

Faculty member Dena Hale, Ph.D. and many of her students from the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship helped to organize the drive and collected donations throughout the month.

For 65 years, the U.S Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program has fulfilled its mission, “to bring the joy of Christmas to America’s needy children,” and this year, NSU employees were a part of that mission.

If you would like to continue to support the Toys for Tots program, volunteers are needed to answer phones and organize collections throughout the country.  To learn more, visit www.toysfortots.org.
