Departments and offices are encouraged to participate in the 2011 Blue Santa Toy Drive. Drive collections will benefit children participating in this year's Christmas at SLU celebration, which will take place Thursday, Dec. 8.
Christmas at SLU is a yearly tradition that welcomes more than 200 underprivileged children to campus for a fun afternoon of games, food and presents from Santa Claus. The Blue Santa Toy Drive will take place on Monday, Dec. 5, and Tuesday, Dec. 6, when Santa will visit offices around campus to collect toys.
Any offices interested in participating and being a stop on Santa's route should e-mail James Hillis at firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Friday, Nov. 18. Please include in the email a contact name, department and location. Each group that registers will receive a confirmation and further information about toy pick-up times.
The Blue Santa Toy Drive is sponsored by the Business School's Service-Leadership Program and the Center for Service and Community Engagement.
