Toys for Tots

In honor of the holidays, the School of Business is hosting the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation toy drive for local needy children (e.g. hospitals, hospices, shelters). Please see below for details!

When: November 30th - December 11th, 2010

Where: Drop off toys in boxes located on 5th Floor Graduate Student Lounge, Duques Hall

What: Any unwrapped toys for children under the age of 13

Local Marine Toys For Tots Campaign FAQs:

Question: What ages of children are eligible to receive toys?
Answer: National rules and guidelines permit distribution of toys to children from 0 up to 13 years of age. However, Marine Corps Reserve units are authorized to place further limitations on this depending on conditions in their areas. In [Worcester County!ListCounties]] the decision has been made to distribute toys to children up to 17 years of age only. We will also distribute toys to individuals that are over 17 in special needs cases.

Question: What are the criteria to qualify to receive toys from this Program?
Answer: Local social service agencies and other legitimate organizations are used to identify needy children and help coordinators distribute toys in the local community. This reduces the possibility of one family receiving multiple gifts. For the benefit of the Toys For Tots Program Marines, to the extent feasible, distribute some toys directly to needy children (e.g. hospitals, hospices, shelters, special children’s event, etc.).

Question: What kinds of toys are not allowed?
Answer: Toys with military theme. Toys related to weapons/law enforcement type toys. Toys with candy. Used toys. No chemicals (i.e. experimental labs, acid, crystal projects, etc.). The Toys For Tots Program does not allow these toys. Toys For Tots of the Marine Corps Reserve will not distribute toys fitting this description that are donated to the Program to children. Instead, these toys will be donated to another charitable organization.

Question: What kind of toys can I donate?
Answer: New, unwrapped toys preferably around the $10 or above price range. It is unsafe to distribute dangerous or dirty toys that could cause injury or illness to a child


Dance and Dance Again

Wednesday, December 8, 2010 at 7:30 PM in Building J Dance Studio,The Movement Composition Class presents the culmination of their choreographic endeavors through a series of large groups pieces. The show is free, but donations will be accepted for cancer victim Raffaele Verde by Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business Fraternity. Ralphie was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor this past fall. He is a 21 years old Senior at Yale University. Ralphie is currently undergoing chemotherapy and should be finished by the end of December. Unfortunately, with his current condition, he will only receive one treatment of chemotherapy. Delta Sigma Pi is working to assist the family by helping offset the exorbitant medical expenses. This performance series is one way in which they will be trying to raise money for Ralphie's Fund. With Ralphie's positive spirit and a donation, we have faith that he will be able to overcome this cancer.
