Griz 4 Kidz Gets Toy Donations For Children

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The ABC FOX Montana news team is working with a handful of businesses to reach out to Griz fans to get toys for children in need. The Griz for Kidz toy drive is held at Saturday's Griz game.

The drive is all part of an effort to ensure every child gets a present this Christmas. Six former University of Montana football players started Griz for Kidz to give all children the opportunity to experience football games. Soon after, the Mountain Broadcasting Foundation and the university as a whole, collaborated on the drive.

This year, organizers said they expect a big turn-out in donations from Griz fans. All the toys will go to various agencies around town, like Mountain Home Montana, Big Brothers Big Sisters, or Watson's Children Shelter, to be handed out to kids.

"I think it's something that's got bigger every year, and it's something we continue to do, because it makes sure there's systems in place to make sure every toy every kid asks for, they get," said Chris Justice with Mountain Broadcasting. "It's just a way to make sure everyone gets a Christmas, because that's something that everyone deserves."

Toy drop-off's will be located at each entrance. ABC FOX Montana will have a Griz for Kidz table in the north end zone. Just look for volunteers with Griz for Kidz signs for help. All new, unwrapped toys are accepted, as well as cash.

If you miss the game but want to make a donations to Mountain of Giving Toy Drive at any Missoula Federal Credit Union Office.
