Pack to Collect Toys for Tots this Saturday
Nov. 16, 2011
Raleigh, N.C. -
For the fifth straight year, NC State will be holding its Toys for Tots Drive this weekend, when the Wolfpack hosts Clemson at Carter-Finley Stadium.
Tom O'Brien is on the national board for the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program and has brought his passion for that cause to the entire Wolfpack nation. In the past four years, the team has helped raise over $150,000 for Toys for Tots and a highlight each year has been the shopping trip when the Pack players take money donated by the fans and select toys that will be given to children over the holidays.
At last year's designated Toys for Tots game, State and Wake Forest fans donated over $24,000 in cash and thousands of toys. This year, Coke has already donated $15,500 for the 31 touchdowns the Pack scored through the UNC game.
Fans can bring a new, unwrapped toy or a cash donation to the Clemson game. Toys will be collected at all major gate entrances and at the Fan Zone three hours before kickoff. Coca-Cola and Harris Teeter will provide a special coupon to anyone who makes a donation.
Fans not attending the game can make toy donations at any Triangle area Harris Teeter locations. Visit the Toys for Tots page on GoPack.com for all participating locations.
