Once again, Information Technology is conducting a toy drive to benefit Baystate Children’s Hospital in Springfield.

Drop-off points listed below are open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Only brand new toys are suitable for hospital donations.

David Sullivan, a member of the IT Staff Leadership Group, who is coordinating the drive, said, “This toy drive is special to me because last year my son Derek was diagnosed with a small heart defect that required open heart surgery. We spent a week in the hospital and I was able to see firsthand how much joy these toys bring to children during their stay.”

Sullivan said Derek is now a fully recovered, energetic 4-year-old.

“Although our visit was a short one, there are many children who spend weeks or months in the hospital and I feel our donations could really brighten their time there,” he said.

Drop-off locations:

  • LGRC A209 (IT Finance and Human Resources)
  • LGRC A262
  • LGRC A109
  • LGRC A147
  • W.E.B. DuBois Library, Room 740
  • Slobody Conference Room (101 University Drive)

Items may also be picked up across campus. Email david.sullivan@umass.edu to arrange pickup.
