Toy Drive in 11th YearPublished: December 1, 2008
CSULB will continue collecting toys for the holiday season with its 11th annual Cherishing Children Toy Drive for needy children now through Friday, Dec. 12. The toy drive is sponsored by staff, students, faculty and alumni.
Members of the campus community are invited to bring new, unwrapped toys to collection boxes located throughout the campus. A party hosted by Staff Council will be held for the children on Wednesday, Dec. 10, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. in The Pointe.
The remainder of the toys will be taken to the American Red Cross and the Long Beach Fire Department for other needy children.
For individuals who don’t have the time but would like to contribute, monetary donations will be accepted and the shopping will be done for you. Those donating money will receive a list of items purchased and a copy of the receipt for tax purposes.
There will be a Cherishing Children toy wrapping party on Thursday, Dec. 4, and Tuesday, Dec. 9, from noon–1 p.m. in the Forty-Niner Shops’ conference room (2nd floor of the bookstore). Wrapping paper and tape will be provided. All you need to bring is cheer, good will and a pair of scissors, if you have them.
