Since its start in 1947 in Los Angelese, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation has collected toys for less fortunate children during the holiday season.
UNO has been a part of that effort since 1960 when the Arnold Air Society and Angels Flight held a Toys for Tots campaign. That included a Toys for Tots Dance. That first campaign collected 336 toys for Omaha-area children.
Please join the 2011 Toys for Tots effort at UNO and help us make a local child’s holiday season something special with the simple gift of a toy. Dropoff boxes will be located from Nov. 7 to 18 on the first floor of the Student Center at the information desk and in the lobby of the Thompson Center.
Instructions: Collect new, unwrapped toys and place them in the designated collection boxes in the Student Center or Thompson Center. Toys should be for children between the ages of 0-14 years old and should avoid suggestions of violence (i.e., toy guns or knives) or specific religious affiliation.
