FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Univ. of Ark.) - Razorback fans attending the men's basketball game against Alcorn State on Saturday, Dec. 15, are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys for donation to Toys for Tots.
Collection bins will be set up at every entrance to Bud Walton Arena and all donations will be distributed to children in both Benton and Washington counties. Fans who are able to donate will receive a voucher for two free tickets to an upcoming women's basketball game. Donators may choose tickets for either the Dec. 28 contest with Coppin State or the SEC opener against Texas A&M on Jan. 6.
The toy drive is the second call for donations that the athletic department and men's basketball program have worked on this year. The first was a canned food drive at Primetime at the Palace and that effort brought in 1,420 pounds of food for the Full Circle Campus Food Pantry.
The Razorbacks are 4-3 on the year and are preparing to travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to take on the third-ranked Michigan Wolverines on Saturday, Dec. 8. The Arkansas women are 7-1 this season and are on the court Thursday night, Dec. 6 against Kansas.
