The Devils will host their annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive on Friday, Dec. 17, when the Nashville Predators visit Prudential Center at 7 p.m. Fans attending the game are encouraged to donate a new, unwrapped toy for collection.
All toys will be distributed to hospitals and to organizations serving children in need throughout the surrounding communities. Anyone making a donation will be eligible to win autographed Devils memorabilia.
Representatives from the U.S. Marines Corps, Company G 2/25, based in Dover, NJ, will collect the toys at the PNC Bank and South Towers, as well as the Lafayette Street, Ford Lincoln-Mercury Garage and VIP entrances. Wives/girlfriends of Devils’ players will be on hand to help.
This marks the 62nd year of the Marine Corps’ involvement with the nationwide Toys for Tots program. For further information, please contact the Devils’ Communications Department at 973-757-6100 or the Toys for Tots hotline at 973-724-4700, or log onto toysfortots.org.
This year, Prudential Center will also team up with NJPAC and the City of Newark to contribute toys to the Greater Newark Holiday Fund. In addition to toys, the Greater Newark Holiday Fund will help provide food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless and many other necessary services to individuals and families in crisis.
