givingoftoysSUNY Broome’s annual Giving of Toys will take place at 11 a.m. Dec. 8, 2016, in the Baldwin Gymnasium.

This event is SUNY Broome’s way of getting ready for the holidays. More than 50 offices, departments, clubs, athletic teams, campus organizations present toys to Santa at the Student Center and the gifts are then forwarded to the local Toys for Tots campaign.

One of the best aspects of the event in the past has been that each group has brought toys appropriate to organization: the Finance Office has donated cash registers and calculators, the Soccer teams gave soccer balls, Educators of Children Club contributed books, and, one year, the Administration brought puzzles, etc.

Hundreds of students and staff participate in the annual event.
