Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women

Student Parent Toy Drive

toysThank you for your interest in learning more about our annual Toy Drive! Throughout November, the Eberly Center will be collecting new, unopened toys to help our student parents celebrate the holidays with their children. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are encouraged to drop off a new, unopened toy at one of our donation sites on Main or Health Science Campus starting on November 1, 2023 through November 30, 2023.

All of the toys donated will benefit UToledo student parents and their children through the Holiday Toy Exchange in December.

Thank you for helping your fellow Rockets and their families celebrate the holidays!

UToledo Student Parents can register for the Holiday Toy Exchange until December 3, 2023.
