It's the time of year for family and friends and giving and thanks, and the Cleveland Cavaliers and Lake Erie Monsters are trying to help make it a good one for a larger group of Northeast Ohio families. Starting tonight at Quicken Loans Arena for the Monsters game, fans are encouraged to bring in toys for underprivileged families. The first time you can donate at a Cavs game would be on Saturday.
From the Cavs:
Beginning with tonight’s (Wednesday) Monsters game and Saturday’s Cavs game, fans are asked to participate in the Toy Drive by bringing new, unwrapped toys to Quicken Loans Arena. Collection bins will be set up at the entrances of The Q for all home games for the two teams between now and December 11th. All donated toys will then be distributed to non-profit organizations throughout Northeast Ohio that work with underserved children.
Fans can donate toys at the following home Cavs games: Nov. 28th vs. Brooklyn; Dec. 1st vs. Washington; Dec. 8th vs. Portland.
Toy donations will be accepted at the following home Monsters games: Nov. 25th and 27th vs. Manitoba; Dec. 3rd and 4th vs. Iowa; Dec. 11th vs. Chicago.
The campaign is sponsored in part by Step2, a local manufacturer of toys that is giving away $5000 of toys.
If you are making it to a game between now and December 8th, please consider making a donation. In the meantime, it's cool the Cavs are using their platform to support stuff like this. Happy holidays.
