Staff Council members will collect the items Friday, Dec. 6, and deliver to the Greater Rolla Area Community Enterprise (GRACE) and the Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce’s “Give Christmas” toy drive (formally called “Angel Tree.”) If your department will have a box, please email Barbi Spencer, president of Staff Council, at to arrange for pick up on Dec. 6.

Traveling trophies will go to the S&T building with the most items collected as well as to the building with the most creative collection box or donation container.

  • Unwrapped toys
