Faculty, staff and students representing 21 organizations, clubs and departments at NJIT contributed to the second campus-wide Toys for Tots drive. Five boxes of new toys and $1,000 in donations were collected, which were distributed to the NJ Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, Harmony House, Key School and for the Lyndhurst First Emergency Squad to visit area hospitals. “Once again, the NJIT community demonstrated our commitment and leadership to enhancing the NJIT college experience by promoting volunteerism," said Humberto "Humby" Baquerizo, NJIT's assistant director of Greek Life and Wellness.
