November 15, 2022

Each year, our campus community comes together to spread joy and bring a smile to children who are spending the holidays at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center. The Florida Poly Police Department is hosting our University’s seventh annual holiday toy drive in continuation of this effort.

This year, we are also collecting toys for a school in Honduras with children from toddlers to age 7. This is our second global outreach toy drive, so please help us spread joy overseas in addition to our local community.

Please, drop off your toy donations now through Friday, Dec. 2, at one of the following locations:

  • Main Campus – UPD headquarters
  • Main Campus – Facilities and Safety Services
  • FIPR – reception
  • Florida Poly South – kitchen

Toys must be unwrapped. Click here to see guidelines from Lakeland Regional Health and a list of recommended toys. Make sure to scroll down.

Together, let’s make the season a bit brighter for these children and their families.
