The season of giving is here and Teaming Up for Tots needs some elves

12/01/15 cu
HAYS, Kan. -- The holiday season is beginning, there is magic in the air, and the Department of Applied Technology at Fort Hays State University is in search of elves with a desire to spread magic and cheer.

The department will assist with the Teaming Up For Tots program for the 26th annual Fred P. Ruda Toys for Tots Day. This year, volunteers will be building a toy camera, and kids will be able to look through it. It even has a built-in, spring-loaded wooden shutter.

Toy building begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. Teaming Up For Tots brings together community volunteers to assemble approximately 200 wooden toys for children ages 3 to 5. The program is designed to spread holiday cheer to locals who may not otherwise receive Christmas presents.

The wood shop in Davis Hall, room 150, is set up as an assembly line. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to be Santa's helpers; however, an adult supervisor is asked to accompany and supervise child volunteers.

For more information or to volunteer, contact the Department of Applied Technology at 785-628-4211.
