SPHHS toy drive brightens holidays for children at Springfield's Square One
The School of Public Health and Health Sciences (SPHHS) collected more than 200 toys to benefit the children at Square One, the Springfield-based early childhood education program whose building was damaged in a gas explosion last month.
Together, students, faculty, and staff in each of the school's four departments, along with many others throughout the campus community, donated toys for children ages 15 months to 5 years.
SPHHS organizers thanked everyone who participated in the toy drive and helped make a difference in a child's life this holiday season.
