A holiday toy drive hosted by Tulane staff members is entering its final week, but there is still time to send gifts for abused or neglected children and to enter a drawing for prizes that include original art and Saints tickets.
For more information see the following press release:
Tulane University Staff Advisory Council (SAC) is hosting its Annual Holiday Toy Drive for the local area CASA programs, and this year we are proud to be teaming up with Tulane’s A.B. Freeman School of Business.
This year’s Tulane SAC will hold the toy drive from November 3rd to December 7th. We will also be selling tickets for a prize drawing. Tickets are $2.00 each.
Prizes are valued up to $2,000 and include:
• “Perception” – Original artwork by artist Stephan Wanger
• A pair of Saints versus Carolina Panthers tickets – Sunday, December 30 @ Noon
• New Orleans Lagniappe gift basket
The SAC has multiple drop-off locations for toys and cash donations as well as access to a web link for donations made via credit card. Please visit http://tulane.edu/sac/communityservice.cfm for further information.
Tulane SAC works with three individual locations in the New Orleans area: Orleans, Jefferson & St. Tammany Parish. CASA New Orleans has 130 children, Jefferson has 200 children & St. Tammany has 400 children in foster care ranging in age of 1-18.
Most of these children have been abused and neglected through no fault of their own and see Christmas morning as just another day on the calendar. NO child should EVER see Christmas Morning that way! Every child deserves to wake up and smile on Christmas Morning. As you can see we have hundreds of children that need & deserve our help, please find it in your hearts to help us help the local area CASA.
