Believe it or not, the holiday season is almost here. Amidst all the things needed to be done—holiday shopping, cooking, and decorating—it’s important to take time out to help others so they can enjoy the holiday season as well.
The Senior Class Council at CVU is hosting a toy drive for the Toys for Kids campaign sponsored by Marine Corps League of Vermont.
Last year, with the help of CVU students and faculty, Class Council donated approximately 500 toys to Vermont children whose families weren’t able to give them the Christmas they deserve. This year, the Senior Class Council hopes to collect even more toys to help our local families in need. Their goal is to gather 600 toys as well as monetary donations to purchase gift cards for teens that are often overlooked. It is their hope that members from the community, not just CVU students and families, will donate new and unwrapped toys to the drop-off barrel located in CVU’s main office.
Donated toys can be dropped off at CVU anytime through Dec. 21 during school hours. Thank you in advance to everyone who donates. You are helping to make this Christmas a joyous memory that one child will never forget.
