HVCC's PTK Honor Society Members Host Drive-thru, Contact-free Donation Event to Benefit Toys for Tots



Members of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at Hudson Valley Community College will host a drive-thru, contact-free toy donation event from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12 on the college’s main campus on Route 4 in Troy. All toys collected will be distributed through Toys for Tots, the annual community initiative coordinated by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve since 1947.

Donors should:

· bring only new, unwrapped toys.

· enter campus on North Drive and turn right into B-1 Parking Lot (in front of the Bulmer Telecommunications Center).

· remain in their vehicles; PTK members will remove the toys from all vehicles.

· wear a mask!
