DUBOIS – The Penn State DuBois Veterans Club is currently holding a collection for Toys for Tots on campus. All members of the community are asked to donate a new, unwrapped toy.
Collection boxes for Toys for Tots will remain in the campus library in the Hiller Building, and in the Center for Undergraduate Excellence (CUE) in the Swift Building until Dec. 14. An additional collection will take place from 12 p.m. until 1:30 p.m. Dec. 5, and Dec. 6, in the Student Union.
Toys for Tots is sponsored and organized by the U.S. 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.
