Hugs4Kids Toy Program
Hugs4Kids began as an Alumni Association activity and quickly spread to other groups on campus. Each year toys are donated by LSUS faculty and staff at the Holiday Luncheon in December. The Alumni Association fills in with more toys and batteries. Volunteers sort, label and box everything up for distribution.
On December 15, 2015 members of the LSUS Men's and Women's basketball teams and their coaches visited The Children's Hospital at University Health Shreveport, presenting toys, autographing basketballs and visiting with young patients. There was also an impromptu caroling session!
Hugs4Kids continues to be a treasured event for everyone involved. For more information, please call 318-797-5190.
