Photo collage with text that says Giving of the Toys

The holiday season has started — and with it comes the annual announcement for The Giving of the Toys, which will be on December 9 at 11:00 am in the Baldwin Gym.

For 25 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.

Campus Life is asking you to give again. Each year the need grows and gets even more local, with many of our students in need. Please note that all toys need to be unwrapped.

If your office or group wishes to participate, please fill out the 2021 Giving of the Toys Donation Form or contact the Campus Life Office at

Gifts given on the day of the event will happily be accepted. As in years past, we will have hot chocolate and donuts and holiday music.

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