    ToyDriveThe 2015 Miami Hurricanes Holiday Gift Drive is now underway with a goal of collecting 1,000 toys and gifts—double the number collected last year—for underprivileged children and senior citizens in South Florida. Faculty, staff, students, and members of the UM community are welcome to drop unwrapped toys for children and gifts for seniors in the donation carts in the Whitten University Center lower lobby and the Butler Center for Volunteer Service and Leadership Development at the Shalala Student Center, room 204, through Tuesday, December 8.

    Coordinated by the Butler Center, the toy drive is the University’s largest and longest running holiday drive and, for the second year, is partnering with Home Instead Senior Care’s Be a Santa to a Senior program to provide gifts to area seniors. The Butler Center also collaborates with many other community organizations, including the Children’s Home Society of Florida, Just Kids Centers, Inc., the Family Resource Center, Allapattah Community Action, and UM’s Miller School of Medicine to help provide their clients and patients with an amazing holiday season.

    If your department or office is interested in getting involved with the Miami Hurricanes Holiday Gift Drive and/or for more information, contact the Butler Center at [email protected] or 305-284-4483.
