Utah Jazz and U.S. Marine Corps to Host Toys for Tots Drive
Salt Lake City - November 23, 2012: The Utah Jazz and United States Marine Corps will host a Toys for Tots drive at EnergySolutions Arena during two upcoming Jazz home games. Toys will be collected on Monday, December 3, when the Jazz faces the Los Angeles Clippers, and again on Wednesday, December 5, when the team plays against the Orlando Magic.
Fans attending these games are encouraged to bring new toys that are not gift wrapped. Items will be collected at the arena doors by volunteers and U.S. Marines. All toys that are donated during the drive will be distributed to local underserved children.
Cash contributions will be collected by volunteers from those who prefer donating money. Funds raised will be used to purchase gifts for teens, an often overlooked demographic in toy drives.
The Utah Jazz has supported the U.S. Marines and its Toys for Tots campaign since the franchise first moved to Utah. This is the team’s 29th year of participation.
