Faculty, staff and students at NJIT found time to brighten the holiday season for needy children in and around Newark. More than 22 organizations, clubs and departments collected five boxes of new toys and over $500 in donations during the third annual campus-wide Toys for Tots drive. Beneficiaries of all the activities included the Salvation Army, Harmony House, FOCUS, La Casa and other agencies in the greater Newark Area. Members of the NJIT community gave cash donations, dropped off toys or children's books, attended athletic home games, baked and bought cookies or joined the Wall of Fame plaques benefiting the Toys for Tots campaign. “Once again, the NJIT community demonstrated its commitment to the service of others in these hard financial economic times,” said Humberto "Humby" Baquerizo, NJIT's Assistant Director of Greek Life and Wellness Programs. "I am thankful for all the faculty and staff, student organizations, Greeks, and the Athletic Student Activity Board, who continue to assist with this program by bringing the holiday spirit to those families in need."  >>
