We'd like to thank everyone that participated in our community service projects during the 2014 holiday season. Our #TigersGiveBack campaign included the Wreaths Across America ceremony in Arlington National Cemetery, as well as our SEC Toys for Tots donation drive in which LSU alumni contributed more than 80% of the total donations raised among our SEC university peers.
The LSU Alumni DC Chapter participates annually in the SEC in DC Toys for Tots drive, in collaboration with other Southeastern Conference university alumni associations in the Washington DC area. It's a fantastic way to help families in need, and a friendly competition among our peer schools to see who can raise the most support. Toys for Tots is a charitable organization managed by the U.S. Marine Corps that collects new and unwrapped toys as well as cash donations to give to children whose parents can't afford to buy presents for Christmas.
Every year, LSU Alumni in the DC area participate in Wreaths Across America by laying wreaths in Arlington National Cemetary during the holidays to honor our veterans and the sacrifices they make.
