2013 Blue Santa Toy Drive a Huge Success

The Center for Service and Community Engagement thanks the 40 departments throughout the University helped to collect more than 2,000 toys for local children.

Thanks to the immense generosity of the Saint Louis University community, hundreds of local children will have a more joyous Christmas this year. More than 2,000 toys were collected this year from 40 departments at the University.

Special recognition goes out to Alumni Relations and the School of Law, who both had exceptional collections this year. The Service Leadership Program in the School of Business raised $2,248 for the drive, donating more than 200 presents to Christmas at SLU.

Students from Alpha Phi Omega, the Service Leadership Program and the Pan-Hellenic Council volunteered hundreds of hours to help wrap presents, decorate and guide children in holiday activities.

Thanks to everyone's great work, the University was able to make Christmas brighter for children at organizations like Almost Home; We Win, Inc.; the Cathedral Basilica; Kingdom House; Our Lady's Inn; and more.
