Holiday Toy Drive


Each holiday season, UPD collects toys for children in need around the campus.

As we have done for the last 24 years, UPD is reaching out to the campus community and surrounding businesses for support with this project. We hope you will consider helping us with a cash gift or a gift in kind so that we may continue making the children's holidays a bit more festive and happy.

If you have any questions about the Holiday Toy Drive, please contact UPD at 408-924-2185.
