Cal Poly student-athletes made a special delivery on Friday to help area kids in need this holiday season. They dropped off car loads of toys to the Salvation Army Unit in San Luis Obispo.
They're members of the "Block P" program, a community outreach group, as well as Cal Poly rugby players. Together, they collected almost $4,000 in donations to provide gifts for 47 kids signed up for the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program.
The Mustangs say it feels great to help kids in San Luis Obispo."I mean it's what, the top ranked happiest place on earth or something like that. So I think it's great that we are able to give out all these gifts to them. It is a little bit humbling," said senior Taylor Goodson, a member of the rugby team.
The Mustangs filled four tables with toys bought with donations given from student-athletes. "It's great to see that all these toys are going to a lot of kids to make their Christmas' happy and joyful," added senior swimmer Angie Haven.
The track and field team raised $500 on its own to win the team competition. Toys will be distributed on December 20.
