Make A Holiday Assist With Your Spartans This Sunday
Dec. 13, 2017
Tis the season of giving and the San José State men’s and women’s basketball programs have the perfect opportunity for you to bring holiday cheer to local families in need with a toy drive for Sunday Friends during Sunday’s doubleheader.
Head coaches Jean Prioleau and Jamie Craighead encourage fans to bring toys, gifts or gift cards to local stores and place them in designated bins around The Event Center. The drive will begin with the women’s game against Nebraska at noon and continue through the men’s game beginning at 3:00 p.m.
Your contributions and that of the two basketball teams will help stock the Christmas treasure chest for the less fortunate children of San Jose and their families. Toys will be presented at community Christmas events at nearby Lowell Elementary and Santee Elementary schools.
Sunday Friends has had roots in volunteerism within Silicon Valley communities since 1997. For more information about the foundation and this year’s toy drive events head to sundayfriends.org.
