Upper Iowa University’s Project Stand UP recently donated $145 to the local Christmas Toy Drive. The Fayette Police Department and UIU Peacocks for Progress continue to lead the toy drive through 5 p.m. Friday, November 13. The Campuswide goal is to collect 25 toys, which will benefit area children who may not otherwise receive presents this holiday season. Faculty, staff and students are asked to consider spending approximately $10 on a toy and place it in the collection box in the front of the Student Center cafeteria (blue and green wall).
UIU Clubs and Organizations wanting to earn volunteer credit hours, can donate two toys for a service. Email email@example.com with pictures of what you donated to get credit. There will be a table near the Servery doors to place donations. Please also log your service on uiu.edu/service.
Members of the general public can drop off their donations with any officer at the Fayette Police Department through Friday, November 20. Each donation will receive one Limited Edition Fayette Police Patch colored in purple for Domestic Violence Awareness. These patches are also be available to purchase for $5. All funds/toys will go to Helping Services for Youth and Families, and the Riverview Center at the end of the donation period.
