FORT MYERS, Fla. - FGCU Eagle fans can cheer on the men’s and women’s basketball teams at Alico Arena this holiday season, while also supporting Toys for Tots during a trio of selected December home dates.

There will be a Toys for Tots collection bin at the men’s basketball game on Thursday December 13 against FIU and at the women’s basketball game on Saturday December 22 against UCF. Fans who donate a new, unwrapped toy at the men’s basketball game on Tuesday December 18 will receive a free youth ticket for the game against Southeastern that night.

Toys for Tots is sponsored by the PFC Paul E Ison Marine Corps League Detachment #60 of Lee County and the Marine Corps League of Naples ET Brisson 063 Detachment.

The drive gathers over 25,000 toys and distributes to over 7,000 Collier County underprivileged children. The program also donates toys to other Collier County Agencies for needy, abused children and women.
