Hugs4Kids Toy Program

Hugs4Kids began as an Alumni Association activity in 2004 and quickly spread to include 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. The toys are then sorted, labeled and boxed for distribution. Since 2004, we have donated at least 1,400 toys. Leftover toys are used by the hospital to provide gifts for new patients who are admitted after the Christmas Season.
In December of 2017 members of the LSUS Men's and Women's basketball teams, their coaches and Alumni Board visited The Children's Hospital at University Health Shreveport, presenting toys, autographing basketballs and visiting with young patients. The visitors also sang carols to the children.

Hugs4Kids continues to be a treasured event for everyone involved. For more information, please call 318-797-5190.
