Troy University faculty and staff lent a helping hand to those in need during the holiday season.
Faculty and staff members donated toys in exchange for tickets to the annual Troy Campus Christmas luncheon. About 600 toys went to the Pike County Department of Human Resources, The Christian Love Center, and the Pike Area Boys and Girls Club.
The Dothan Campus took part in the annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program, collecting 76 toys for needy families during the holidays. The Rosa Parks Museum also took part, collecting toys at both the museum and the Children’s Wing.
Additionally, faculty and staff on TROY’s Montgomery Campus stuffed 98 stockings for the Salvation Army’s Christmas Stocking drive.
“We greatly appreciate our faculty and staff who gave back to the community to ensure that as many families and children as possible had a merry Christmas,” said Dean of Student Services Herb Reeves. “We also appreciate Sodexho for its work in helping with our Christmas luncheon and toy collection.”
