The Brazosport College Student Veterans Association (SVA) recently collected multiple boxes of toys and donated them to Toys for Tots through the Brazoria County Marine Corps League.
 
The SVA raised the toys through volunteer donations throughout the college, along with an ice cream fundraiser, in which students traded toys for ice cream treats.
 
The toy drive lasted from December 3 to 16. All of the toys raised in Brazoria County will go to children in the county.
 
One of the items collected was a bicycle that was assembled by country music performer Aaron Tippin on stage during his November 1 concert at The Clarion at Brazosport College. The bike was donated by The Clarion.
 
“One of the primary goals of the SVA is to support the community and veterans,” said SVA President Joseph Castro. “We are happy to be a part of this program.”
