    LATROBE, PA – The Saint Vincent College Alumni Office and Alumni Council will host the annual Stuff the Trolley toy drive on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Fred M. Rogers Center on the Saint Vincent College campus.
     
    This marks the third year that Saint Vincent will take part in Stuff the Trolley, which supports the Pressley Ridge Angel Tree Campaign, designed to provide toys and other wished-for items for Pressley Ridge foster children during the holidays. The items collected in “Stuff the Trolley” may be the only Christmas gifts many of these children receive.
     
    Those who bring a gift to the event can be entered into a raffle to win a variety of prizes. Free cookies and hot cocoa will be provided for event attendees.
     
    The Stuff the Trolley event at Saint Vincent has continued to grow. After netting 80 gifts in 2017 and 120 in 2018, Saint Vincent College alumni director Shawn Gouch has set a goal of collecting 150 gifts in 2019.
     
    Gifts will continue to be accepted through the week following the event. They can be dropped off at the Alumni Office on the second floor of Alfred Hall, 300 Fraser Purchase Road, Latrobe.
