About this Event
The Spirit of Giving Toy Drive is an annual volunteer based community service project that is organized through SAAC and our partnership with Wonderfund, a Massachusetts nonprofit that works with the Department of Children and Families (DCF). The program helps struggling families in the Holyoke, Springfield, and the broader Pioneer Valley area provide gifts for their children during the holidays. The community service subcommittee of SAAC heads the project by organizing the matching of members of the Mount Holyoke community with a child from a list provided through Wonderfund. The volunteer is given the name, age, and a few of the child's top gift preferences. They have until December to purchase the gift and return it to SAAC who will deliver the presents to Wonderfund to be distributed to the families in time for the holidays.
SAAC will be hosting a Toy Drive Drop Off event on Dec. 6 where members of the Mount Holyoke community can drop off their purchased gifts and celebrate the spirit of giving. In the theme of inclusion and holiday cheer the event will feature an international cookie platter and hot chocolate for all.
