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.
"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.
