Coral Gables, FLA... The University of Miami men's & women's basketball teams have teamed up with the United States Marine Corps & the BankUnited Center to participate in the 2008 holiday Toys for Tots Program, to help collect toys for underpriviledged children this season.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year and distribute those toys as holiday gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy during the holidays, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.

All fans that bring an unwrapped toy with them to any of the following games will receive a free ticket voucher for each unwrapped toy donated. For more information, or to order your game tickets, please call 1-800-GO-CANES or log on to hurricanesports.com.
