For the past 18 years the Hoover Toy Drive has been held to provide gifts to all students at Hoover Elementary. Every year, each child writes Santa a letter requesting a special gift. LLSA and the Southwestern Community work hard to provide that one special gift to every one of the 625 students. For many of these children, the gifts that we provide will be the only gifts that they will receive during the holiday season as many of them come from unfortunate situations.
Hoover Toy Drive During COVID-19
In the effort of keeping the students at Southwestern and Hoover safe, the Toy Drive is going to look a little different this year. However, the mission behind it will still be the same. We are dedicated to making this holiday season special for every child at Hoover. For many of these children, the gifts that we provide will be the only gifts that they will receive during the holiday season as many of them come from unfortunate situations.
In past years, LLSA, along with the student body at Southwestern has rallied together by tabling on campus for weeks at a time, passing out flyers, and holding school-wide meetings to find sponsors for each and every child. With the limitations COVID places upon us this year, rather than toys, we need your funding to allow us to get the toys to these children and follow all of the rules.
We need your help in making this holiday season special by raising money to purchase that one special gift to every one of the 625 children at Hoover.
In addition, we would like to request your help in funding our outstanding Southwestern LLSA students who have demonstrated a commitment to serving communities like Hoover Elementary School. Your support for our LLSA students will provide much needed financial assistance in the form of scholarships and textbook awards. Through your generosity, you will allow us to help support all of these students throughout the year.
