UM Griz for Kids Toy Drive is at Griz-Cat Game Saturday
The 8th annual Griz for Kids toy Drive will be Saturday at the University of Montana Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
The drop-off of new, unwrapped toys or cash donations will be at all entrances to the stadium before the annual Brawl of the Wild Griz-Cat football game.
Linebacker Jordan Tripp is organizing the drive this year and he wants to surpass last year's effort. Three trucks full of toys and $3,000 in cash was donated, according to a UM press release.
The toys will be distributed to Mountain Home Montana, Head Start/Child Start, Youth Homes, Child and Family Services, Missoula Indian Services, Watson Children's Shelters, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Word/Futures program, AWARE and Early Head Start.
Those who aren't attending the game can contribute cash at the Missoula Federal Credit Union. All donations are tax deductible.
