NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The Notre Dame men’s basketball team, in conjunction with WNDU-TV 16, will lend its support in this year’s annual Toys For Tots drive for the South Bend/Michiana area.

All Irish basketball fans that attend Tuesday evening’s (December 2) home game versus South Dakota at 7:30 p.m. (ET) are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy. Individuals who donate a toy can purchase a walk-up admission ticket for just $7.

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 needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
