PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's fans are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Hawks' men's basketball game against Holy Cross on Tuesday, December 4, to benefit the "Toys for Tots" Drive. U.S. Marines will be on hand in the Fieldhouse Lobby to collect the toys.
Also at the Holy Cross game, money will be collected for the men's basketball team's annual Christmas charity project. The Hawks will once again use the money to purchase gifts for families in West Philadelphia.
The "Toys for Tots" Drive, held by SJU's Office of Government and Community Relations and the Athletic Department, in conjunction with the Marines, will benefit needy children in the Philadelphia area.
Toys can also be dropped off in the collection bins on campus in Security, the Fieldhouse and the Dean's Office in Mandeville until December 10.
