TALON Holiday Toy Drive for Club de Padres a Huge Success

Montclair, NJ (12/15/11) - The Montclair State University TALON (Teaching Athletes Leadership Opportunities Now) recently conducted its 12th annual Holiday Toy Drive. The organization collected the toys which were donated throughout the month of December at several home men's and women's basketball contests in addition to individual and team contributions. 

Over 250 toys were brought in and will be donated to Club de Padres/Parent's Place in Paterson, NJ. Club de Padres is a group of children and families with disabilities and serves those families in the Paterson area as well as all Latino families in urban communities in New Jersey. 

The toys will be handed out to the group's children and siblings at the organization's annual Holiday Party.

The Holiday Toy Drive is one of the many community service projects  conducted by the Red Hawks student-athletes throughout the year.
