TEXT SIZE

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.
