The Pens and US Marines Join Forces for "Toys for Tots"

The Pittsburgh Penguins will hold their 16th annual toy drive at two home games this season at the Mellon Arena:

November 22nd (gates open at 1:00 PM)
November 29th (gates open at 6:30 PM)

Donations will be collected at Gates 1, 3 and 10. Collections will continue at each of these games through the first 10 minutes of the first period.

Every fan who brings an unopened new toy to the game or makes a cash donation that evening will be eligible to win Penguins’ autographed memorabilia including a grand prize Evgeni Malkin autographed framed print from Frameworth. All toys and cash donations collected will be donated to the U.S. Marine Corps’ “Toys for Tots” Program for distribution to underprivileged families in the Pittsburgh area.

Penguins’ annual toy drives have collected over 12,100 toys and $27,400 in donations since 1992.
