Wright State collects hundreds of toys for annual gift drive

FAIRBORN – The Wright State community collected hundreds of toys and items for children in Greene and Montgomery counties through the university’s annual Holiday for Kids Christmas gift drive hosted by We Serve U.

The donated toys will be donated to Greene County Children Services and The Toy Cottage, in association with Montgomery County Children Services and managed by For Love of Children (FLOC).

Wright State has hosted annual toy drives for more than 20 years. This is the second year We Serve U has hosted the drive. This year, more than 800 gifts were donated, passing last year’s total of 740 gifts.

The gifts will be delivered to the families’ homes before Christmas.

Toy donations will also be collected at the Wright State men’s basketball game tonight at the Nutter Center.
