A great cause

On Saturday, it is Walter Camp Football Foundation Day at the Bowl.

The Foundation in conjunction with the Yale-NH Hospital Auxilary's Toy Closets Program
are asking fans to bring a new unwrapped toy to support the cause. Toys can be dropped off at
Hospitality Village. It is the 7th year WCFF is sponsoring this toy drive.

Here is more information on the Toy Closet program.

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.

Toys, gifts and financial contributions are needed throughout the year. The success of the Toy Closets program is directly related to community involvement. The Auxiliary encourages schools, organizations and businesses to make the program the recipient of their community-minded efforts.

*They ask for developmentally appropriate, new and unwrapped toys and gifts only, please.
