Loras SAAC's "Toys for Tots" a Big Hit

From Denise Udelhofen, Associate AD and SAAC Advisor at Loras:
 "This past December, Loras’s SAAC sponsored “Toys for Tots” on three separate occasions. Toys for Tots is a national program sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps, which looks to give those less fortunate a Christmas present. The Loras community was asked to donate an unwrapped toy when coming to one of the three Loras basketball games. When dropping their toy off, they were given a free popcorn ticket to enjoy during the athletic event. Many SAAC members were involved with posting signs around campus, spreading the message through word of mouth, and volunteering time during lunch to reach out to Loras staff, faculty, and students through flyers. Overall, it was a very successful event and the Loras community did not disappoint when asked to help support the Dubuque community."
