The campus community shares its gratitude each year in Curtis by making donations and collecting clothing and toys for area families.
Aggie students and staff at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture collect for the Toys for Kids and Clothes for Kids drives as part of the Curtis Hometown Christmas observances, said Mary Rittenhouse, associate professor and chair of the NCTA agribusiness management systems division.
“Christmas is fast approaching. Please consider what you can donate to help out families in our community,” Rittenhouse said.
"Do you have younger family members that maybe can donate toys they no longer want to keep,” she asks of students. “Donate new or gently used toys and make a youngster happy for Christmas.”
A “warm” winter clothing drive is also organized by the Hometown Christmas sponsoring groups, the Medicine Valley Chamber of Commerce and Farm Bureau Financial Services in Curtis. Donations for coats, winter caps, hats, scarves and gloves for any age child are helpful.
Donations are accepted until Monday, December 6. Campus collection points are in the Ag Business division on Second Floor of Agriculture Hall, 404 E. 7th Street, or by the desk of Jan Price at the Livestock Teaching Center, Siminoe Avenue.Download a PDF of this press release
