UMass SAAC Conducting Toy Drive At Upcoming Basketball and Hockey Games



Nov. 20, 2012

The University of Massachusetts Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is once again conducting a toy drive at upcoming hockey and basketball games to benefit Shriners Hospital for Children in Springfield, Mass.

The SAAC will be accepting new, unwrapped toys for children through age 18 inside the entrances of the Mullins Center at the December 1 men's basketball game, and at the November 30, December 7, and December 8 hockey games.

Those donating are asked to avoid toys made of latex and foam for allergy purposes. Some of the children seem to favor interactive toys, particularly ones that light up or make sounds.
