Toys for Tots wraps up Dec. 13 at LCC
By Ashlee Buhler
The LCC American Marketing Association (AMA) will wrap up another successful year of Toys for Tots donations on Wednesday, Dec. 13.
The club has been working with the LCC Veterans Affairs office to collect monetary and toy donations around campus since mid-November.
“Toys for Tots has always been a great community involvement opportunity for AMA,” said Adrienne Jenkins, co-adviser of the AMA with Bill Motz. “We’re always happy to make sure our donations go toward a great cause and giving children Christmas presents that they otherwise wouldn’t have had — it’s a great feeling.”
To seal off the event, a Toys for Tots Celebration will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 13 from noon to 1 p.m. on the second floor of the Gannon Building — right outside of the Student Life Office.
“We’re going to have Santa Claus on hand if anybody wants to get a photo … We’re also going to have the LCC Choral students perform some nice Christmas carols for us,” Jenkins said. “The AMA is also providing free popcorn — so it’s going to be a nice wrap-up of the whole Toys for Tots season.”
For students or staff wanting to make a donation this holiday season, the US Marine Corps will be available during the celebration to collect any last-minute donations.
