Blue Santa Toy Drive Collects Nearly 2,000 Toys

Blue Santa Toy Drive

Faculty, staff and students displayed their Christmas spirit in full force as they donated nearly 2,000 toys during the 2016 Blue Santa Toy Drive. Collected toys were then distributed during a Christmas party at Chaifetz Arena for children whose parents are incarcerated. The event was sponsored by the Metropolitan Bar Association of Greater St. Louis and provided the children with toys, as well as a chance to play games, work on crafts and visit Santa Claus. Toys were also distributed to the St. Vincent de Paul Society and other local community non-profits.
