University of Guam Endowment Foundation is the Drop-Off site for Toys for Tots in Mangilao
The UOG Endowment Foundation is happy to announce that it has been designated as one of the drop-off locations for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.
According to the Guam Toys for Tots website (https://dededo-gu.toysfortots.org), “the mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”
Donations for the Toys for Tots program will be accepted at the UOGEF location until December 10, 2021. The UOGEF office is conveniently located at 303 University Drive, House #10 Dean Circle, Mangilao, GU.
The UOG Endowment Foundation has partnered with Opake for its 2021 G is for Giving fundraising campaign. Opake is a popular shop that sells locally branded apparel, urban art supplies and a wide selection of skate goods inspired by island culture and lifestyle. Opake has produced a limited-edition t-shirt to commemorate G is for Giving. The shirt design shows a seedling being given from one person to another. This symbolizes the act of giving in such a manner as to grow and benefit a community. It is reminiscent of planting a seed that will grow and bear fruit for the future.
Opake commemorative t-shirts are available for donations to the UOG Endowment Foundation of $50 or more. Funds raised through the sale of the t-shirt will go towards the UOGEF General Endowment Fund which will be used to support the University of Guam programs and students in various capacities including capital projects, student scholarships, equipment purchases, research grants, visiting professors and lecturers, and so much more.
Today is the international day of giving! We’re encouraging everyone to show their support by donating towards the G is for Giving campaign. Your donation will go towards scholarships, programs and capital campaigns at the University of Guam.
Be sure to visit the different student organizations on campus to turn in your donation. To make a donation you can go on our GIVE tab and choose G is for Giving.
