Donate to Santa's Helper and get a UNT bag

Santa's Helper toy drive, 2011; Staff Council groupThe annual partnership with WFAA Santa's Helpers began Nov. 28. Toys will be collected in boxes around campus through noon Dec. 15. The toy collection program helps brighten the holidays for as many as 50,000 North Texas children.

Here's a win-win situation: Get a free UNT shopping bag by bringing a toy drive donation to the Hurley Administration Building, Room 360. That's the office of University Relations, Communications and Marketing. We'll add your donated toy to the collection boxes, and you'll have an eco-friendly bag for your personal holiday shopping. And Santa will appreciate your generosity.

New, unwrapped toys can be donated at the brightly wrapped collection boxes located around campus (list below.) Toys will be collected from donation boxes beginning at noon Nov. 28, and will be regularly collected during the event.

Faculty and staff also may bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Old Fashioned Holiday Experience annual holiday party from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 8 in the University Union, Silver Eagle Suite. 

Santa's Helper is one of many Denton area programs and services supported by the UNT community. The toy drive is  in conjunction with WFAA-TV, Staff Council, Faculty Senate and Student Government Association.
