Binghamton University hosts annual holiday drives for families in need
Binghamton University faculty, students and staff aim to bring joy to the lives of needy families in the Binghamton School District at the 18th annual Student Association holiday drive to be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, December 7, in the Old Union Hall of the University Union.
Hundreds of gifts ranging from toys to food certificates will be collected and distributed to over 100 individuals. Tables will be set up to sort the gifts, which will then be transported to the schools and distributed to the families.
Also, at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Toys for Tots will be on campus to pick up hundreds of dollars worth of toys and a check for over $8,000 at the Binghamton University Physical Facilities building.
Every year, Physical Facilities employees organize a golf tournament in memory of co-worker John Mangino, with all proceeds going to Toys for Tots.
