Student Veterans collecting for Toys for Tots

Saint Xavier University’s Student Veteran Alliance (SVA) will accept donations for the U.S. Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” program now through Tues., Dec. 10. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve “Toys for Tots” program is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

Here at SXU, new and unwrapped toys can be donated to the following locations: Admissions Office (A226); Records & Advising (A203); Financial Aid (A216); Student Affairs (L208); the Robert and Mary Rita Murphy Stump Library; Campus Life (L103); Shannon Athletic Center (SAC); Graham School of Management (GSM); Warde Information Desk; and Gilhooley’s Grande Saloon.

*Please note that after-hours/weekend drop-offs will be accepted at the Info Desk, the Shannon Center, and Gilhooley’s.

SVA is not only helping with the collection of toys, but also will volunteer at the Toys for Tots Warehouse until mid-December. If you are interested in joining SVA in their volunteer efforts, or are interested in learning more about this organization, feel free to contact Sheri Gross at

Thank you and happy holidays!
