Hurricanes Holiday Gift Drive

Hurricanes Holiday Gift Drive | November 13- December 4

The Hurricanes Holiday Gift Drive is the University of Miami’s largest and longest running holiday toy and gift drive. Each year our UM community of students, faculty, staff and administration comes together to collect gifts for children and senior citizens in the South Florida community. In 2021, nearly 1,000 gifts were collected for Home Instead Senior Care, and Hope for Miami.

Join us in November and December as gifts are collected to brighten the holiday season of a child or senior citizen in the South Florida community.

Donation carts and bins will be located throughout campus, but the main drop-off points are the Butler Center for Service and Leadership in the Shalala Student Center - Suite 204 and the Whitten University Center Lower Lounge.

If you are an office or organization that would like to host a collection bin or you have any questions regarding the drive, please contact the Butler Center at or by phone at 305-284-4483.
