Alpha Sigma Tau Golden Bears to Lead "Toys for Tots" Drive

The sisters of the WVU Tech Alpha Sigma Tau Gamma Mu Chapter will be sponsoring a toy drive for the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Toys for Tots campaign. The students will be collecting new, unwrapped toys from December 3 – 7.

“We’re asking the WVU Tech campus and greater Montgomery community to donate a toy and make sure every child in our community wakes up Christmas morning with a smile,” explained Lindsay McDowall, WVU Tech AST president and junior chemical engineering major.

Toy bins will be available in classroom buildings around campus, as well as the Bear’s Den throughout next week. Toy donations will also be accepted at the David S. Long Alumni House during the parade watch party on Friday, December 7.

The donated toys will be showcased in a “toy mountain” in the Tech Center Ballroom during the University’s annual Light Up Old Main celebration next week. USMC Sergeant Arroyo will be on campus during the event to collect the donated toys, which will be distributed to children in Kanawha County.
