Giving of the Toys 2019 logo

The holiday season has started — and with it comes the annual announcement for SUNY Broome’s Giving of the Toys, which will held at 11 a.m. Dec. 5 in the Baldwin Gym.

For more than 20 years, this event has been one of SUNY Broome’s ways of getting ready for the holidays. More than 60 offices, departments, clubs, athletic teams and campus organizations 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; for example, the Maintenance Department donated toy trucks, the basketball teams gave basketballs and the International Students Organization contributed toys from all over the world.

Student Activities is asking you to give again! Each year, the need grows and gets even more local.

If your office or other group wishes to participate can fill out this form or contact the Student Activities 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 this year’s Giving of the Toys! Come dressed to … impress?
