Every year during the holiday season, the Winona State University National Residence Hall Honorary promotes the event, You Light Up My Life, to get the campus community in the giving spirit.

The event raises funds for Toys for Kids by soliciting donations from on-campus residents. In exchange, each resident who donates receives a string of holiday lights to decorate their space. In 2018, the event raised over $1,200 to purchase toys for local children in Winona.

NRHH President Peter Weinand said, “We enjoy raising the money and shopping for Toys for Kids because it is a great way to get involved with the local community and give back during the holiday season.”

NRHH members hope to see continued growth in the fundraiser from year to year.
