The Walter Camp Football Foundation in conjunction with the Yale-NHHospital Auxiliary Toy Closets Program is asking fans to bring a new unwrapped toy to support the cause and in return, receive a free general admission ticket to the game.
Toys can be dropped off at the Hospitality Village on Central Avenue, which is located near Gates D & E. This is the 16th year the Walter Camp Foundation has coordinated this toy drive and the seventh with event sponsor, the law firm of Berchem Moses PC
The Yale-New Haven Hospital Auxiliary’s Toy Closets program was developed to provide new, age-appropriate and educational toys to pediatric patients at the Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital. Founded in 1993 by Ann Nyberg, WTNH News Channel 8 anchorwoman, the Toy Closets help insure that pediatric patients come away from their hospitalization with a pleasant memory. In addition, the toys serve as gifts for special occasions such as birthdays and holiday celebrations for hospitalized children.
Fans are asked to make sure toys or gifts are developmentally appropriate, new and unwrapped.
