WVU begins building 20th Toy Mountain, seeks donations

Student Engagement and Leadership and the Student Government Association have kicked off their annual toy drive to help build Toy Mountain. Toy Mountain will be constructed from community donations until Dec. 10 in the Mountainlair. The WVU community is encouraged to help by donating unwrapped toys valued at $5 or more.  

Since 2000, the two groups have encouraged the WVU community to donate toys throughout the holiday season, which are given to Christian Help as part of its annual holiday toy distribution for underprivileged children in and around the Morgantown area.

If you would like to donate, you can either drop off your toy in the Student Engagement and Leadership Office, Room 162 of the Mountainlair, or visit the Amazon Wish List to order a toy that will be delivered to the Student Engagement and Leadership Office. If ordering from Amazon, please have items arrive by December 6. 

Toys will also be collected at the women’s basketball game against Presbyterian on Nov. 10 and the men’s basketball against Rhode Island on Dec. 1 at the WVU Coliseum.

WVU student organizations competition  

The student organization whose members donate the most toys to Toy Mountain will receive a $300 grant, second place will receive a $200 grant and third place a $100 grant. Student organization members may bring their toys to Room 162 in the Mountainlair and note the organization they represent or note their organization when ordering from the Amazon Wish List.
