The University of Connecticut Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be sponsoring a Holiday Toy Drive at a pair of men's and women's basketball games next week.
The games will be the Monday, Dec. 1 men's basketball game against Delaware State and the Wednesday, Dec. 3 women's basketball game against Holy Cross. Both games are at Gampel Pavilion and begin at 7:30 p.m.
As the holiday season approaches rapidly, SAAC is asking all patrons planning to attend these games to bring new and unwrapped toys for the collection. The toys will be donated to The Cornerstone Foundation in Rockville, Conn., The Waterford Country-Windham Safe Home in North Windham, Conn., and the Village for Families and Children in Hartford.
