Marshall fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha taking collections for Toys for Tots

Nov. 05, 2012 @ 12:15 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A Marshall University fraternity is taking collections in November for Toys for Tots, calling it Pikes for Tikes.

Members of Pi Kappa Alpha will be manning a table in the lobby of the Memorial Student Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays throughout November, excluding Nov. 19-23, which is Thanksgiving break.

Students will be accepting new, unopened toys or cash or check donations. Members of the Marine Corps will then come and pick up the toys in early December.

Cameron Wadley said those who want to make a cash or check donation should include their address so a receipt for the toys the fraternity members purchase will be sent back to them.

Wadley also is working to set up community collection events during the weekends leading up to early December.

For more information, contact Wadley at 240-409-4103 or by email at wadley@live.marshall.edu. Checks can be sent to Pikes for Tikes, 1411 5th Ave., Huntington, WV 25755.
