Calvin SAAC's Toy Drive Underway

Calvin SAAC's Toy Drive Underway

This October and November, members of Calvin's SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) are hosting a Christmas Toy Drive at Calvin home athletic events. SAAC members will collect new toys and donations with the goal of brightening the holiday season for underprivileged children in the Grand Rapids area.

Donated toys should be new, and geared toward children and young adults ages 8-18. Sample donation ideas include sporting equipment, board games, card games, books, science kits, art kits, and gift cards.

At the conclusion of the toy drive, Calvin SAAC members will donate all toys and money collected to various church organizations helping to brighten the holidays for children and families in need.
