NEW ROCHELLE, NY - The Iona College men's and women's basketball teams will be hosting a "Toys for Tots" donation drive at its next home contests. A collection table will be set up at Wednesday's (Nov. 28) men's game vs. Niagara and Dec. 5 women's basketball vs. Bryant.

The collection will be run in conjunction with the Westchester County Detachment of the Marine Corps League, Iona College's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and men’s soccer team and Pronto Pizza of New Rochelle and begin at 6:00 pm on game day.

Checks should be made to the "Toys for Tots." All donations are used exclusively for the youngsters needs. All donations are tax deductible for income tax purposes.

Pronto Pizza - located at 134 North Ave in New Rochelle - is supplying coupons for half off a large pie to anyone who donates a new unwrapped toy or a donation over $10.
