@walshcollege www.walshcollege.edu/toyexpress In December 2010, a College officer was tutoring a student at Blackwell Institute. He questioned the student what she was most looking forward to for the holidays. She indicated she was not celebrating, because her family couldn't afford it. It broke his heart to hear the story.

In an effort to make the student's holiday a little more special, the College pulled together and purchased a brand new toy for each student in the class. An event I like to call "Santa Toy Express to Blackwell". 40. Don't Do It All Source: Chad Wiebesick @Wiebesick
