Frances McCrone Toy & Food Drive

The Libraries’ 39th annual Frances McCrone Toy & Food Drive will be held Nov. 23—Dec. 18, in support of the Salvation Army’s Christmas Toy Bureau.

Toys for girls and boys up to the age of 16, non-perishable food items, gift certificates/cards for teens, and items for family pets are needed. Over the years, the McMaster community has supported this cause generously. Your continued support is very much appreciated!

Why not start a toy-drive in your office, residence or department? Donations can be dropped off at a collection box at your nearest campus library (Mills, Innis, Thode or the Health Sciences Library).
