At FAMU, affectionately known as the “College of Love and Charity,” the holiday season is a special time of year.
The University community unites every season to give back to children and families in need with two special events: The President’s Toy Drive and FAMU PD’s Stuff the Cruiser. Volunteers and donors bring the University’s commitment to “Excellence with Caring” to life by providing unwrapped gifts and gift cards for children in need.
Sherita Billingsley was one of many parents who saw their child’s Christmas wishes come true thanks to the generous Rattler spirit. She and her children were surprised with a room full of gifts to ensure their holiday was filled with joy.
FAMU leaders, such as President Larry Robinson, Vice President for Student Affairs William Hudson and Police Chief Terence Calloway, worked tirelessly with the campus community to ensure a special holiday season for children with incarcerated parents and beneficiaries of the Christmas Connection, The Hope Community, Big Bend Homeless Coalition, Living Stones International, Inc., and the Tallahassee Housing Authority.
