The 29th annual Fred P. Ruda Teaming Up for Tots Day is set for Saturday in Fort Hays State University’s Center for Applied Technology.
Students and staff in the Department of Applied Technology will host volunteers to assemble about 200 wooden toys for children ages 2 to 6 years.
The program is designed to spread holiday cheer to local children who may otherwise not receive Christmas presents. This year’s toy is a piggy bank on wheels.
All ages are welcome to volunteer for the toy production, but children 12 years and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Jobs include sanding, running parts from station to station, putting on wheels, attaching parts, finishing and some machine operations by those who have experience in that area.
Start time is 9 a.m. and will run through about 1 p.m. Volunteers can come and go as it fits into their schedules.
