NEW ROCHELLE, NY - Iona College athletics will host its annual "Toys for Tots" donation drive at its next two men's basketball home contests. The Gaels’ student-athlete advisory committee and golf team will have a collection table for new unwrapped toys and donations Wednesday during the Marist game (Dec. 4) as well as next Saturday (Dec. 14) vs. St. Bonaventure. The collection begins one hour before tip-off and runs through halftime.

The program provides a bit of joy to those abused, underprivileged and institutionalized children in Westchester County. The children served are in the 0-18 year age group. The most neglected age group is the teenage females. 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.

The address for the Westchester Detachment of the Marine Corps League is: PO Box 505, White Plains, NY 10602
