APA helps Toys for Tots
APA is collecting new/unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots program.  Donations can be made through the offices at our 29th and 22nd street buildings.   All donations received by December 11 will receive 1 hour community service credit.  Students can also help with the distribution of toys on December 21 and 22.   To help, report to the UAW Hall on Madison Avenue at 8:30 am.

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens
