Armstrong Sponsors 'Toys for Tots' Promotion
SAVANNAH, Ga. - In partnership with the Student Government Association and Staff Advisory Council, the Armstrong Atlantic State University Athletic department will be a drop-off location for the annual US Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots campaign. As an added bonus, anyone who brings a new, unwrapped gift to either of a pair of upcoming home games will receive free admission.
The first Toys for Tots drop will be Tuesday, November 22 when the Pirate men’s and women’s basketball teams play host to Coastal Georgia in a 5:30/7:30 p.m. doubleheader. The second opportunity for donation will be Armstrong’s Peach Belt Conference opener then it takes on Flagler in a Saturday, December 3, twinbill, starting at 1:30 p.m.
As an incentive to Armstrong students and faculty who get in free with their Pirate ID, as well as season ticket holders, if they bring an new, unwrapped toy on either of those two dates they will receive a free t-shirt.
ABOUT TOYS FOR TOTS
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
