For the hol­iday season, sev­eral groups on campus are orga­nizing toy drives to sup­port chil­dren and fam­i­lies in Boston.

The Latino/​a Stu­dent Cul­tural Center is col­lecting unwrapped toys and clothing for fam­i­lies at the Eliz­a­beth Stone House, a shelter for fam­i­lies in Jamaica Plain. The LSCC has posted a wish list from each family member online and dona­tions will be col­lected at the LSCC, located at 104 Forsyth St., through Friday, Dec. 16.

The Eliz­a­beth Stone House serves home­less fam­i­lies and indi­vid­uals by helping them develop goals and skills to resolve the issues — such as domestic vio­lence, sub­stance abuse and mental ill­ness — that led them to become homeless.

We try and seek out shel­ters that have bilin­gual fam­i­lies,” said Rebecca Veira, the LSCC assis­tant director. “We’re trying to sup­port the com­mu­nity that we serve here at North­eastern, and it’s impor­tant for us to reach out to our com­mu­ni­ties beyond the uni­ver­sity as well.”

The unwrapped gifts then go to the Eliz­a­beth Stone House, where staff and par­ents hold an annual party to wrap the gifts ahead of Christmas Day.

Northeastern’s Office of City and Com­mu­nity Affairs office is also run­ning a toy drive, with dona­tions being dis­trib­uted by Project Hope in Roxbury.

Dona­tion boxes are located at three-​​dozen loca­tions across campus. For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact Anna Sylvester in the Office of City and Com­mu­nity Affairs at (617) 373‑3168 or a.​sylvester@​neu.​edu.
