ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals are hosting a Caps Care toy drive supported by GEICO to benefit The Salvation Army and Martha's Table on Dec. 11, when the Capitals host the Boston Bruins at Capital One Arena.
Fans are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys at any entrance. Individuals who donate will receive a poster of Capitals player Carl Hagelin. Monetary donations also will be accepted.
The Salvation Army provides compassionate care to everyone in need of help without discrimination. The organization offers meals and services to the homeless and emergency assistance to individuals and families (including rent, utilities, and food.) In addition, The Salvation Army provides emergency shelter to the survivors of all forms of human trafficking; transformational help for young mothers and their children; comprehensive addiction treatment for adults; disaster relief, and youth enrichment through music, arts and education. For more information or to donate, visit SalvationArmyNCA.org or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
A portion of the toys will also go to DC nonprofit Martha's Table, Monumental Sports & Entertainment's (MSE) community partner for the month of December.
For nearly 40 years in the District of Columbia, Martha's Table has supported strong children, strong families and strong communities by increasing access to high-quality education, nutritious food and family supports. Those values are closely aligned with MSE's own commitment to becoming the most important and most socially responsible enterprise in Greater Washington, uniting our community and uplifting the collective spirit of our region.
