Staff Council begins DSU Toy Drive

This Delta State holiday season has once again kicked into the spirit of giving. Help members contribute to this year’s annual DSU Toy Drive, running until Dec. 17.

Unwrapped gifts are sought for children from infancy to 10-years-old and will be donated to youth identified by the Bolivar County Family and Children’s Services. The collection will end at the annual staff holiday breakfast on Dec. 17.

The Delta State Administrative Council began the holiday gifting today by delivering a truckload of non-perishable food items to the BCFCS through its annual Feed-A-Family food drive held each year before Thanksgiving.

“Feed-A-Family is as a way to give back to the DSU family and community,” said Rhonda Loper, project coordinator for the Okra Scholars program. “A special thanks to each of the staff who donated food and/or time to make this years event a success.”

For more information the DSU Toy Drive, contact Loper at or 662-846-4504. Or contact Whitney Delaney at or 662-846-4113.

Delta State’s Staff Council serves as a liaison between the administration and the staff to provide a formal process for staff to discuss issues involving university policies and procedures and to forward ideas, recommendations and options to the president.
