NACOGDOCHES, Texas – As has been the tradition during the holiday season for years, the Stephen F. Austin Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) once again teamed up with the Toys for Tots organization to provide a joyous holiday season for individuals and families around the Nacogdoches area.The Lumberjacks’ SAAC coordinated toy drives during the SFA’s Nov. 15 home football game against Northwestern State, the Dec. 1 women’s basketball game against Wiley College and the Dec. 7 men’s basketball game against Louisiana Tech.In addition to the toys collected during the three drives, various Stephen F. Austin student-athletes also donated toys during their team Christmas parties. Those offerings were added to the haul collected from SFA’s three games.Toys for Tots began in 1947 and has become an avenue for raising funds and purchasing toys. The organization currently distributes 18 million toys to seven million less fortunate children annually.As part of the “Southland Gives Back” initiative, the Southland Conference will profile a community service outing from each of our 13 member institutions this holiday season.
