Kellogg Community College’s Athletics Department collected $44.50 in spare change during the months of October and November and used the money to buy toys they then donated to Toys for Tots.
Sharon Powell, coordinator of the Miller Building, which houses the Athletics Department on KCC’s North Avenue campus, said this is the third year the department has collected spare change for holiday Toys for Tots donations.
“We are happy to do our part in making Christmas a little brighter for those in need,” Powell said. “We plan on starting our spare change collection earlier next year so we are able to buy more toys!”
Members of the Kellogg Community College baseball team, pictured above, dropped off the donated toys to the Toys for Tots program box at the Independent Bank location on North Avenue earlier this month.
