Office of Veterans Affairs provides free stocking stuffers

The Office of Veterans Affairs will be providing free toy stocking stuffers to Lamar University veteran students until Friday, December 12. The stocking stuffers, one per child, can be picked up in Room 101 of the Wimberly Building between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

“I was surprised upon discovering the outreach group was donating toys to the Lamar student veterans to give to their children,” said Eric Matthews, Veterans Affairs certification official. “This is a great thing for our hard-working veterans, and it is sure to make a positive impact in the community here at Lamar.”

The local chapter of the Military Peer Veteran Network donated the toys and stocking stuffers. Any remaining toys will be given to a local charity.
