Each year the Philadelphia Eagles encourage their fans to help make the holiday time brighter for Philadelphians in need by joining with the U.S. Marines for their annual "Toys for Tots" Book & Toy drive.
This year's Book & Toy Drive will be held on December 20, when the Eagles take on the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field. Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped book or toy to Lincoln Financial Field! All toys donated will be given to children through the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots Drive, and all books collected were donated to children through Eagles Youth Partnership, the Eagles' non-profit, charitable wing.
Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson will be at Barlow Pontiac Buick GMC in Woodbury, NJ from 3-4pm on Friday, December 18, to greet fans that donate a toy to the Toys for Tots program.
Fans may also choose to donate online by visiting the Toys for Tots of Philadelphia's website! or dropping a toy off at their local GMC Dealership. You can also Text or Donate Online or find a Dropoff Site near You!
Thank you to all of the fans who helped to make this year's toy drive so successful!
