School of Social Work seeks toy donations

September 29, 2008

Dr. Michael Niles gathers toys that ASU’s School of Social Work, Office of American Indian Projects, is collecting for American Indian children living in rural and urban areas throughout Arizona.

The office already has gathered more than 400 items such as stuffed animals, children’s clothes and shoes, and games, to be distributed during the holiday season. Primary recipients will be tribal foster children.

Donations of items for children ages 0 to 16 will be collected through Dec. 20. The toy drive is sponsored by the Indigenous Early Intervention Alliance.

Niles is a professor in the School of Social Work and co-director of the Office of American Indian Projects. He is the founder of the Indigenous Early Intervention Alliance.

Donations can be sent to the ASU School of Social Work, 411 N. Central Ave., Suite 800, Phoenix, AZ 85004-0689.
