On December 22nd, members of the Iona College SAAC sponsored a toy drive for Toys for Tots during the men's and women's basketball doubleheader. At the Iona College men's and women's basketball games, Gael fans came out not only to support the Maroon and Gold, but to make Christmas a little brighter for families a little less fortunate than their own. Many Iona fans who came to the game brought a toy to benefit the Westchester County Marine Corps League "Toys for Tots" program. This event was sponsored by the Iona College Student Athlete Advisory Committee.
The primary goal of "Toys for Tots" is to deliver a message of hope to needy youngsters to motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders. We please ask all fans that come to show Gael pride on Thursday and Friday, to think of others during the holiday season and donate a toy to the program.
