Agribusiness students are rounding up Christmas gifts for area youngsters as part of the “Hometown Christmas” celebration in Curtis.

The AgriBusiness Management (AMS) students at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture are coordinating a collection of new or gently used toys for area youth, said Mary Rittenhouse, AMS division chair.

“The Ag Business Club students wanted to be a part of the overall Christmas effort sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and community volunteers so they are setting up collection boxes around campus for donations,” said Rittenhouse.

The Christmas Toy Drive at NCTA started before Thanksgiving and continues until Dec. 7.

Suggested gifts might include any new or used toy for a youngster such as puzzles, dolls, tool kits, board games, action figures, plastic sports equipment or other appropriate items for preschool or elementary school age children.

For teens, suggestions might include colorful socks, playing cards, gift cards or coupons to community businesses.

Collections boxes are located at the NCTA campus on third floor of Ag Hall where the AMS division is located, or at the offices in the Education Center or Livestock Teaching Center buildings.

For additional information or to donate, contact the AMS Division Office at (308) 367-5275.
