UD community supports Toys for Tots
4:57 p.m., Dec. 17, 2013--This year's Toys for Tots campaign at the University of Delaware, coordinated by the Department of Public Safety, gathered more than 1,000 toys.
This year, five drop-off locations were available across the campus -- Public Safety, the Trabant University Center, the UD bookstore, the Perkins Student Center and the Fred Rust Ice Arena -- so that new, unwrapped toys could be donated for distribution as gifts to needy children. The program is run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
Giving today to shape tomorrow
"This year's campaign was a huge success," Yvonne Simpson, business administrator in the Department of Public Safety, said. "Thank you to everyone in the UD community who participated, and a special thanks to our drop-off location partners."
The UD drive was coordinated by Master Police Office John Betsch and Cpl. Frank Besaw.
