In the spirit of the holiday season, the Staff Senate is again teaming up with Parking Services to sponsor a toy and food drive.

This year, they are working in conjunction with the Semper Fi Society, Theta Chi and Alpha Kappa Lambda, with the support of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

Parking Services is offering faculty, staff and students the opportunity to pay off part of an owed parking ticket by donating a new, unwrapped toy and/or food.

Here’s how it works:

•    All toys will go to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.

•    Fairfax Campus – food items will be donated to New Hope Housing Inc.

•    Arlington Campus – food items will be donated to Arlington Food Assistance Center.

•    Prince William Campus – food items will be donated to the Fill-A-Basket campaign. Prince William is also participating in Be a Santa to a Senior.
