Toy Drive in 11th Year

Published: November 17, 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.

For more information or to obtain a collection box, call Bob Rodgers at 562/985-7853 or Charleen Rice at 562/985-8176.
