‘Tis the season: Giving of the Toys on Dec. 6

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. Dec. 6.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. Dec. 6.

For more than 20 years, this event has became one of SUNY Broome’s ways of getting ready for the holidays! More than 60 offices, departments, clubs, athletic teams and campus organizations typically present 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.

If your office or other group wishes to participate can fill out this form or contact the Student Activities Office at StudentActivities@SUNYBroome.edu. Gifts given on the day of the event will happily be accepted. Of course, we will have hot chocolate and doughnuts and holiday music. The Buzz and Focus will carry more information on the event as the time draws closer.

We are also excited to announce an Ugly Sweater Contest to kick off this year’s Giving of the Toys! Come dressed to … impress?
