Collection bins on campus are once again located in  Joe Walton Stadium (first floor main lobby), Sewall Center (main arena and third floor), Island Sports Center (main lobby), Nicholson Center (across from Admissions Office) and Hale Center (inside third floor doors facing Franklin Center). Please be generous by donating a new unwrapped toy. Or better yet bring a new unwrapped toy to our final "Toys for Tots" home game of 2016 and get in free!
