CLARKSDALE– Coahoma Community College is working to ensure local kids have a memorable and happy holiday season with a Math and Science Christmas Toy Drive.
The drive, organized by CCC’s Math and Science Club, in ongoing through Dec. 1. The club aims to gather hundreds of new, wrapped or unwrapped toys to distribute to children in need during the Christmas season.
The campus is encouraged to support the effort by purchasing toys for boys and girls, ages 4 to 10, and dropping them off in Room 105, located on the first floor of Whiteside Hall.
“It is our hope that every child will experience the joy of opening at least one gift during the Christmas holiday,” said Santana Lee of CCC’s Math and Science Department.
Lee said all of the toys collected will be donated to children from selected schools in surrounding counties.
“Our goal is to make a child’s Christmas special through the Math and Science Christmas Toy Drive,” said Lee. “Together we can make a difference.”
