ATLANTA – With more than $2500 and 500 toys collected at Tuesday night’s men’s basketball game, the Georgia Tech student-athletes and members of the United States Marine Corps have now collected more than $4000 and over 1500 new toys for the Atlanta Toys for Tots program.
The sixth-annual Michael Isenhour Toy Drive will conclude this weekend as the student-athletes and Marine Corps will be on-hand to collect donations and toys prior to the start of the Georgia Tech-Georgia women’s basketball game, which begins at 2 p.m. Sunday.
“We are very appreciative and have enjoyed partnering with Georgia Tech on this project,” said Chief Warrant Officer Anthony Wilson.
“It has been so much fun assisting on this project,” added Georgia Tech Student-Athlete Advisory Board President Kristina Hull. “We know that this is a great cause, and the generosity of our fans has been overwhelming.”
Gates open at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, which will be the final day of the 2006 Michael Isenhour Toy Drive.
