On Wednesday, December 5th, members of the Iona College Football team participated, for the fifth annual Christmas Toy Drive at the Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle. The event, which has been highly successful, was a joyous time for all the players as well as the children.

In an auditorium filled with so much holiday joy and spirit, team members gave Santa Claus a helping hand by distributing gifts to the hundreds of children in attendance and anxiously waiting to get their picture taken with Santa. Some of the team helped out at the cookie station, a player and children favorite, other players led the children other activities including a treasure hunt, parachute and “limbo” contest!

Dressed in their Santa hats and jerseys, the players had a great time interacting with children from the New Rochelle area and sharing stories of Christmas’ past as well as their success this season on the football field.
