CU System Staff Council on Friday hosted more than 100 children and parents from Aurora’s Buckley Air Force Base at a holiday party at Denver’s Warwick Hotel. The gathering was the third-annual community outreach effort by the council, which collected toys from staff members at system administration at 1800 Grant St., Denver.
Santa and Mrs. Claus were joined by CU-Boulder mascot Chip and CU Denver mascot Milo in greeting the families and posing for photos. When the kids weren’t opening presents, they crafted tree ornaments and colored with crayons. The toy drive focused on benefiting children whose parents are deployed away from home this holiday season.
