City Times sponsors toy drive


Every Christmas, there are hundreds of teenagers who don’t have the luxury of spending this festive celebration with family.

However, The Polinsky Children’s Center fosters many of these young teens during the holiday season. There is always a limited supply of gifts for teen boys and girls this time of year, since most donations received by the facility are aimed at younger children.

City Times staff, writers and editors are holding a donation drive for the teen boys and girls of the Polinsky Children’s Center this holiday season and gifts will be collected on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from Dec. 11-22 in room L-125. Any generous donations are appreciated, but items from the following list are suitable gifts:

n Teen clothing
n DVD (rated PG-13 or under)
n Board Games
n Video Games
(Rated Teen or lower)
n Grooming supplies for
both genders
