UT showed how much they cared for the needy children of the Quad Cities, when 15 students and four chaperones and their family volunteered to help the US Marine Toys for Tots program last night. The students and staff filled the orders for 100 families in 2 hours. This year Toys for Tots is expected to help 2,600 families and this year only 981 family orders have been filled and to make matters worse donations are at historic lows. If you know of a family that needs help with toys this year the Toys For Tots Registration ends this Saturday December 1st. It’s not too late to help one of these needy families, by donating a new unwrapped toy or money, make checks out to: UTHS Toys For Toys drop off money or check in the General Office or 259 north by Thursday, December 6th. The Marines are running short of toys for unisex 6 months – 2 years old and large toys for 3-5 and 6-9 year old along with mature puzzles and coloring books. You can also help a needy family out by donating some new or like new winter clothing for “UT Cares” and “The Oasis” until the end of the semester. Special thanks goes to Mrs. Carla Golding, Mrs. Tammy Dunker’s daughter Laney and her Mom, Mrs. Stacey Drish sons Jordan & Sam and daughter Kaitlin and bus driver Karrie Allen for helping chaperone, their hard work was inspiring and helped make the night special for all who attended.
