The Wilmington University athletic department and the Student Athletic Advisory Committee is proud to announce they were able to collect and donate over 200 toys to the Wilmington Chapter of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation this holiday season.

Collecting toys throughout the entire month of December at basketball games, SAAC was able to donate 218 toys to the Marine base in Wilmington which will then be distributed to less fortunate boys and girls throughout the state of Delaware.

According to the Toys for Tots website, the foundation’s objective are to help needy children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable natural resources - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

To donate a new, unwrapped toy, or to help the Toys for Tots Foundation in any way possible, please visit their website at
