Each year, we invite SAC members and guests participate in the Blue Santa Toy Drive co-sponsored by the Center for Service and Community Engagement, the John Cook School of Business service leadership programs and Campus Ministry. We request donations of new toys for area children. We usually collect toys in November with a visit from Saint Louis University's very own Blue Santa.
In 2012, the campus wide toy drive was a tremendous success and we received a personal thank you from Blue Santa.
"I wanted to say thank you again to SAC for all the toys donated. Due to such a large amount received, we delivered the toys from SAC to military personally waiting for flights at Lambert Airport. They were given to the USO. Several military personnel were very thankful to be able to pick out a toy to present to a waiting son/daughter.
I wish there was a way to convey the joy it brought to us."
