With the holiday season upon us, the Frederick Keys have announced a partnership with Toys for Tots for a second consecutive season. The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children.
Members of the Frederick community can donate a toy at Harry Grove Stadium during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. Those who donate will receive two tickets to a 2014 Frederick Keys home game along with two Keys hats.
"One of the things that we really focus on is events and organizations that are doing things for Frederick. These toys are going to be given to kids right here in our area, and you know, uplifting the spirits of many kids that families might have a tough time in getting that great gift that their youngster may want for the holiday season," said Adam Pohl, Assistant General Manager.
The Toys for Tots drive will run until Saturday, December 14th, when the Keys host their annual holiday event in the Mattress Warehouse Club.
The Keys Holiday Event, held on December 14th from 10am-1pm, will feature pictures with Keyote Claus and discounts on merchandise. Fans who donate toys during the event will receive a special discount on the items that are for sale.
