Bank Street Participating in Toys for Tots Holiday Toy Drive

Posted by Katie Peshut on November 26, 2012

From Monday, December 3 through Friday, December 14, the Bank Street community will be collecting toys for children in need, especially those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Toys for Tots has already provided toys to the majority of shelters housing children affected by Sandy, so the toys collected will be used to replenish the toys that were given out. Members of the School for Children Parents Association are spearheading this College-wide initiative.

Begun in 1947, Toys for Tots is an annual program conducted by the U.S. Marine Corps to collect new toys for children in need across the nation.
