Hofstra's 2012 Holiday Toy Drive: JUST 1 can make a difference

toy is all it takes to make this holiday season bright!

Until December 7, Hofstra is hosting a Toy Drive to support the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN), which provides aid to needy families on Long Island. We're reaching out to all members of our Hofstra Community to support this year's toy drive. We realize that lately things have been difficult and challenging for so many, particularly now following the hurricane.  We're asking that everyone, especially STUDENTS, consider giving Just 1 new, unwrapped toy to make a difference in one child's life. 

Remember that feeling opening up a new barbie, lego set, super soaker, Talk Boy, or creepy crawlers (I loved those as a kid) felt?  Well, pick up a few Koosh balls, Beanie Babies, or Silly Putties to make one little kid's holiday dream come true. There are a lot of good and affordable options in the bookstore too. 

There are no restrictions on the toy selection, except that it must be new. Something as simple as a coloring book can be a meaningful gift to a child who perhaps has never had one before. No gift is too small and each will go to a child in need this holiday season. 

For those who would like to donate, you may drop off your toy off at either the Fitness Center or the Student Center (near the bookstore). There are also bins located in 200 Phillips Hall and in the Mack Information Center on the south side of campus.

It only takes Just 1 gift to make a difference in the life of a child...TOGETHER let's make it happen!

For any questions, please contact Mary Coleman at 516-463-4698 or mary.coleman@hofstra.edu.
