The holiday season has started — and with it comes the annual announcement for The Giving of the Toys, which will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 14.
For more than 20 years, this event became one of SUNY Broome’s ways of getting ready for the holidays: more than 60 offices, departments, clubs, athletic teams and campus organizations presented toys to Santa at the Student Center. The gifts are then forwarded to the local Toys for Tots campaign. Often groups bring toys appropriate to their organization: the Maintenance Department donated toy trucks; the basketball teams gave basketballs; the International Students Organization contributed toys from all over the world, etc.
Student Activities is asking you to give again. Each year the need grows and gets even more local, with many of our students in need.
Gifts given on the day of the event will happily be accepted. Of course, we will have hot chocolate and donuts and holiday music.
