The American Society of Civil Engineers Student Chapter Toy Drive is underway, and students are encouraging toy donations from anyone desiring to help. The toy drive will benefit the UK Children’s Hospital this coming holiday season and gifts may be brought to the Department of Civil Engineering’s main office—Oliver H. Raymond Building (OHR) 161. The Children’s Hospital is most in need of toys for teenagers and infants; their complete wish list is displayed on the second floor of OHR in the ASCE display case.
Many of the gifts on the Children’s Hospital wish list are under $5, with some even under $1. Listed items at low prices include princess/superhero stickers, stress balls, packs of markers and crayons, or pencil sharpeners. ASCE also suggests donors consider purchasing iTunes or Wii gift cards, which are available at most major grocery places.
For more information, contact Ann-Marie Harik, President of UK’s ASCE chapter.
