James Sprunt has again been designated as a drop off location for “Toys for Tots” this holiday season. The primary goal of the Marine’s Toys for Tots program is that through the gift of a new toy, individuals would help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children. Those interested in being a blessing to those in need are asked to donate a new unwrapped toy in one of the “Toys for Tots” boxes located on campus.
The drop off boxes are located as follows: Strickland Building in the Commons Area/Lobby, Hoffler Building in the Student Success Center and General Education Office area, Hall Building in the VoTech Office Area, Herring by the Barber School Training Labs, McGowen Building at the Front Desk/HR area as well as by the JSCC Foundation Office and Nursing Labs; Williams Building by the Education Talent Search offices; Boyette Building at the Continuing Education Office and Library. The Toys for Tots boxes will be collected on Thursday, December 17 at 10am.
“Last year, we were able to donate 139 toys to this great program,” said Taylor Kennedy, the administrative assistant for student services, who is coordinating this year “Toys for Tots” efforts. “It would be wonderful to outdo ourselves this year.”
Some suggestions for items to donate include sports equipment (basketball, baseball, football, etc), backpacks, books, board games, dolls, action figures, craft kits, and more. No donation is too small or too big. Everyone in the community is welcomed to stop by the campus to donate a gift.
