Men’s Ice Hockey to Host Toy Drive to Benefit Hasbro Children’s Hospital

PROVIDENCE, RI – The Brown men’s hockey team looks forward to hosting a Toy Drive at its three remaining home games this semester to benefit Providence’s Hasbro Children’s Hospital. The primary goal of the Toy Drive is to help “bring a smile to a child” and donate needed items to the hospital as we head into the 2009 Holiday season.

Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to any of the three remaining home games during the month of December, starting with the Bears’ game against Princeton on Friday, December 4th. Fans who bring a toy to any of the games will be admitted to the game for free.

Items needed by the hospital include: Crayola crayons, pencils, and markers, coloring books, construction paper, playing cards, beads, arts and crafts kits, matchbox cars, board books, and musical toys.

Gift certificates to major retailers, including Walmart, Borders, Target, Toys R Us, are also greatly appreciated by the hospital. If fans choose to donate a gift card, the hospital asks that they are purchased in $5.00 increments.
