Holiday Spirit Sparkled at BHCC: The Stuff a Cruiser Toys for Tots Toy Drive
Friday, January 6, 2017
The BHCC Office of Public Safety/Campus Police, the Office of Student Activities and AFSCME joined forces to collect and distribute toys to needy children in the Greater Boston community for the second year running.
During the annual BHCC Winter Wanderland Holiday Faire and Art Mart on December 8, a BHCC cruiser was stationed on the main plaza of BHCC’s Charlestown Campus, along with BHCC Campus Police officers. Members of the BHCC community filled the cruiser with donations of new, unwrapped, nonviolent toys.
The 2016 BHCC Winter Wanderland also included attractions such as live music, an art mart, health fair, selfie station and a volunteer social. The event was presented by the Art Gallery, Student Activities Office, Office of Special Events, Health Services, Athletics Office, AFSCME, Public Safety/Campus Police, the Bookstore, Community Engagement and the Nursing Department.
The toys that Bunker Hill Community College collected during the Stuff a Cruiser toy drive filled five bags. Through Toys for Tots, many children received gifts this year due to the continuing generosity of the BHCC community.
