Before the game, donations of new, unwrapped toys will be accepted by volunteers on the Front St. and McConnell Blvd. plazas outside the arena entrances. All toys collected will be donated to the Salvation Army of Central Ohio's Christmas Cheer program. Fans who donate that night will receive a voucher redeemable for a pair of tickets to the January 30 game vs. the Minnesota Wild.
For those unable to make it to the game, toy donations will be accepted November 30 through December 14 at the FOX Sports Ohio Blue Line at Nationwide Arena, the FOX Sports Ohio Blue Line at The Mall at Tuttle Crossing as well as the OhioHealth Ice Haus, OhioHealth Chiller Easton, the OhioHealth Chiller Dublin or the OhioHealth Chiller North. Additionally, donors may drop off toys at the "Big 10TV Toy Drive" at the 10TV studios (770 Twin Rivers Dr., Columbus, OH 43215) on Thursday, December 14 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
