Toy Drive at the Gardner Rink

The Gardner Veteran's rink is having a toy drive for kids in need. Let's show some Sting pride and help make it a success. New unwrapped toys for kids aged newborn to 13 years old are being accepted. Some ideas for items are puzzles, dolls, board games, and action figures. If you donate $5 or more in items you will receive a free admission to public skating. 100% of the donations will go to local children in need. If you have any questions see Scott Demont (rink manager) at the rink.

Donate a new unwrapped toy and bring a smile to a child in need this Christmas season.
