All collected toys will be distributed to less-fortunate children within the Bloomington-Normal community as Christmas gifts. Donation drop boxes will be stationed at all Redbird Arena entrances the day of the game.

Every fan that donates a toy will receive a voucher to take a photo, with the women’s basketball team on Doug Collins Court, following the conclusion of the game. Photos will then be emailed to participating fans the following day by members of the ISU Athletics Marketing and Promotions department.
