The Memphis Grizzlies are doing their part to make the Holiday season joyful by continuing their Season of Giving. On Tuesday night, the Grizzlies hosted their Annual Holiday Toy Drive, presented by Sonic Drive-Ins, that benefits Toys for Tots and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

The entire Grizzlies team of players and coaches played the role of Santa at the event that encourages fans to donate new, unwrapped gifts to help make every child’s holiday dreams come true. The new, unwrapped gifts that are collected will be donated to Toys for Tots and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

The first 800 fans that were generous enough to contribute to the Memphis Grizzlies Holiday Toy Drive met and received autographs from Grizzlies players and coaches. They also received a buy one get one ticket voucher for the Dec. 19 match-up against the Milwaukee Bucks.
