On Monday, the Latino/a Student Cultural Center kicked off its annual toy drive. From LSCC’s Mirna Shampemba:
With the holidays approaching this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate with the spirit of giving. The LSCC would like to invite you to join in on the Annual Toy Drive this holiday season. Every year the LSCC sponsors a shelter or community center and with your generous support we have made hundreds of wishes come true. This year we are excited to continue sponsoring the Hildebrand Family Self-Help Center of Cambridge. We know in these economic times it will become very difficult for families to make the holidays special for their children. With your help we can touch the lives and hearts of families in our community. The Hildebrand Family Self-Help Center is committed to working with homeless families on mending the fabric of their lives and rebuilding our communities.
Click here for the 2013 Toy Drive List of each child, their sizes and their wishes. To sponsor a child, all you have to do is contact the LSCC at LSCC@neu.edu and provide the name of the child you wish to sponsor. All gifts can be dropped off at the Latino/a Student Cultural Center (104 Forsyth Street) by Friday, December 13, 2013.
This is a great way to help a child have a very merry Christmas morning. Be sure to check out the LSCC on Twitter for all updates.
