BOSTON, MA – On Friday, December 20, the current Boston Bruins roster will participate in the Boston Bruins annual Holiday Toy Delivery event sponsored by Wynn Resorts as part of its multi year community agreement.
The Bruins will split up into teams and visit children at six Boston hospitals and deliver the toys purchased at the Bruins Holiday Toy Shopping event on December 3. The players will visit Boston Children's Hospital, Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center, Franciscan Hospital for Children, MassGeneral Hospital for Children, Shriners Hospital for Children, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. Media wishing to cover the Bruins Toy Delivery event should plan on the best media opportunities being at Boston Children’s Hospital from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. (300 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA 02115).
All of the toys being delivered at the Bruins Holiday Toy Delivery event were purchased through donations from the Bruins players, coaching staff, the Boston Bruins Foundation, and Wynn Resorts. These toys will be given as gifts to over 600 children who are unable to celebrate the holidays at home. Bruins Hall of Famer Ray Bourque started the holiday toy shopping and delivery tradition when he was captain, and the event has continued through the years. Bruins Alternate Captain Patrice Bergeron spearheaded the Bruins Toy Delivery for the fourth year.
Storage and transportation of the toys will be provided by Gentle Giant.
