A big THANK YOU to all of you who have helped UPD in the last nineteen years! We invite you to join us in our 20th Annual UPD Holiday Toy Program for members of the campus community and the extended neighborhood community. Last year, we reached out to over 250 families (about 1,000 children), bringing toys and food to cheer up their holidays.
A few dates to remember: You can donate an unwrapped toy for a child 0-14 years at the UPD lobby or donation boxes around campus. UPD will collect toys years around for the following year. Donation boxes will be picked up Dec. 8. A wrapping party will be held Dec. 14 in the Aerobics Room at the Event Center. The toys will be delivered Dec. 17.
You may also donate online. When you reach this page click on the “GIVE” button, click on “OTHER” and enter UPD Holiday Toy Drive. Or you may send a check to the Tower Foundation (Tax ID #83-0403915) c/o San Jose State University, One Washington Square, San Jose, CA 95192-0183 – again indicating that your donation is for the UPD Holiday Toy Drive.
For more information on volunteering, donating or submitting an application, please call Claire Kotowski (408) 924-2174, Liza Rios, (408) 924-2171 or Manuel Aguayo, (408) 924-2168.
Thank you and Happy Holidays from UPD!
