LSUS Men’s and Women’s basketball team participated in Hugs4Kids

December 20, 2016

The LSUS Men’s and Women’s basketball teams continued the Alumni Association’s Hugs4Kids activity this holiday season in an effort to bring kids a little holiday cheer. The LSUS players and coaches visited The Children’s Hospital at University Health in Shreveport.
On December 12, the LSUS student athletes were sent into hospital rooms in groups of two or three and delivered toys to the young boys and girls at the Children’s Hospital at University Health in Shreveport. They also handed out basketballs to the children complete with autographs from the players.
The toys were donated to the Alumni Association at the Annual LSUS Holiday Luncheon by faculty, staff and alumni from the university.
The Alumni Board began the Hugs4Kids Toy Program about 10 years ago in order to give back to the community while also including the LSUS campus.
Hugs4Kids continues to bring smiles and happiness to the children, families, and volunteers involved. For more information about the program, please call 318-797-5190.
