Hofstra's 2012 Holiday Toy Drive: JUST 1 can make a difference





In case you missed my post on Facebook, I'd like to let you know about our annual Toy Drive. Until December 7, Hofstra is hosting a Toy Drive to support the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN), which provides aid to needy families on Long Island. We're reaching out to all members of our Hofstra community, including parents to support this year's toy drive. We realize that lately things have been difficult and challenging for so many, particularly now following the hurricane.  

We're asking that everyone consider giving Just 1 new, unwrapped toy to make a difference in one child's life. There are no restrictions on the toy selection, except that it must be new. Something as simple as a coloring book can be a meaningful gift to a child who perhaps has never had one before. No gift is too small and each will go to a child in need this holiday season. 

For those who would like to donate, you may give your toy to your student to drop off at either the Fitness Center or the Student Center (near the bookstore). If you prefer, you may also mail toys to the Office of Parent and Family Programs, Attention: Mary Coleman, 200 Phillips Hall, 128 Hofstra University Hempstead, New York 11549-1280.

It only takes Just 1 gift to make a difference in the life of a child… TOGETHER let's make it happen!

For any questions, please contact me, Mary Coleman, at 516-463-4698 or mary.coleman@hofstra.edu.

Wishing you all an early happy and healthy holiday season,

Mary Coleman, assistant director, Office of Parent and Family Programs
