Donations Sought for School of Communication Toy Drive

The School of Communication has partnered with the Weld County chapter of Toys for Tots for the first-ever "Message of Hope" toy drive. New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off at the school's office in Candelaria 1265.

The toys will be displayed in the corner display case on Candelaria's first floor until they're donated to Toys for Tots over the Thanksgiving break.

If you can't make it to Candelaria to drop off your donation, call the school at 351-2045 and someone will pick up your toys from any campus location.

Instead, anyone who wants a phone book should notify their department/work area administrative assistant or designee, who can then order the appropriate quantity for the entire department by emailing warehouse.contacts@unco.edu.
