SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – SUSLA’s Veterans Upward Bound program is hosting a toy drive on Monday to support the Toys for Tots program this year.

Two locations will be accepting unwrapped toys on Dec. 13. Donations can be brought to the main campus from 5:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and to the downtown campus metro center from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Director of the SUSLA Veteran’s Upward Bound Program Urina Holt says, “Here at SUSLA we believe if we deliver a message of hope to our younger generation that it will share some love in this community, with all that’s going on, that there are still people who love and are willing to share and give.”

Marine Toys for Tots brings holiday cheer to children who would not otherwise have Christmas gifts through toy donations, literacy programs, and more.
