For the seventh year in a row the Miami campus has participated in helping collect toys for the USMC Toys for Tots Foundation annual event that benefits many need children in Monroe County. This year, as in years past, a truck load of toys was delivered to the event venue where the Marines were collecting and storing the toys until Christmas distribution. The event is a weekend long fundraiser with different activities, silent auctions, pig roast and live bands all to collect funds from the community and toys that will go directly to the needy children of the Florida Keys. Retired Gunnery Sergeant Lou Slagle was present as well and always extremely appreciative of the donations that come from KU Miami. The Florida Keys’ Toys for Tots campaign, in the past, has collected the highest per capita donations nationwide! This is always such a wonderful event to be a part of; seeing all of the toys that are collected for the children in the Florida Keys as well as to see the community come together is always inspiring.
