16th Annual Toy Drive to be held on Dec. 2
The New York Rangers will continue a 16-year tradition this season with their annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive.  Partnering with the United States Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, the New York Rangers will collect toys for needy children in the tri-state area.
  
Fans attending the annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive get an autograph and the chance to meet Rangers in exchange for donation of an unwrapped toy. Dan Girardi, above, will be among the players on hand.
On Wednesday, December 2nd, for the fifth year in a row, the Rangers will host their annual Toy collection at The Pond, at Bryant Park from 4-7pm. 

Adam Graves and current Rangers players Ryan Callahan, Michael Del Zotto, Christopher Higgins, Michal Roszival, Dan Girardi and Matt Gilroy will be at the Toy Drive to provide autographs and photo opportunities. Fans are encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots, and in exchange will receive an autograph from a current player.

In addition to the toy collection, fans will have an opportunity to take pictures and skate with Rangers Alumni at The Pond at Bryant Park. Admission for skating is FREE and rental skates are available on site. Enjoy a fun-filled afternoon of Rangers activities including face painting, caricaturists, Santa and more! The Pond at Bryant Park is located at 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Ave. in Manhattan.

The annual Toys for Tots drive has such a impact on the tri-state area, as well as the Rangers organization; because it allows the team and the fans to join forces and give back to the community, serving children in need.

Last year the Rangers collected over 4,000 toys for children in need because of the organization’s dedicated and compassionate fans.
