Basketball teams to collect toys for Gifts for Winona

The men’s and women’s basketball teams are partnering with the Saint Mary’s University Gifts for Winona program to collect toys on Saturday, Dec. 3.

During Saturday’s doubleheader, the community is encouraged to bring along a variety of new toys for girls and boys, which will be distributed through Gifts for Winona, particularly to youth served by the Family and Children’s Center of Winona. The women’s team will play St. Olaf at 1 p.m., followed by the men’s game at 3 p.m., both in the SMU Gym.

The Saint Mary’s Gifts for Winona program, now in its 10th year, helps more than 1,400 people in the Winona area have happier holidays. For more information about the Family and Children’s Center, go to
