Toy driveGive to Toy Drive 2008! The college has once again joined Community Partners of Dallas’ annual toy drive to fulfill the holiday wishes of 75 Dallas children who have been abused and neglected. Faculty, staff and students are invited to participate by selecting a child’s wish card in room 522.

Each wish card lists a child’s name, personal information and wish. Most wishes range from $10 to $20. Then return the wish cards and matching toys, unwrapped, by Dec. 5. Contact Lori Dees at Ext. 8471 for more information.

Community Partners of Dallas is a nonprofit organization that helps abused and neglected children by providing support to Dallas County Child Protective Services. Last year the program provided toys to more than 5,500 children.
