The Seattle Storm announced Tuesday it will host its annual Toy Drive Benefiting Seattle Children’s when it takes on the New York Liberty Thursday, July 6 at 7 p.m. PT.
With the help of forward Alysha Clark, who regularly visits Seattle Children’s during the season, the Storm will be collecting items at the game and donating them to the hospital. Fans can visit the Wish List for a list of items Seattle Children’s recommends for donation.
“Seattle Children’s holds a special place in my heart,” said Clark. “Having spent numerous days visiting kids, I have made friends with the kids, their families and the nurses, specifically on the cancer floor. I’m honored that Storm fans will help rally around this cause, and am looking forward to helping brighten the days of the kids with the delivery of the new toys.”
Among the greatest needs include: GO Cart game systems, twistable Crayola crayons (mini size), Crayola crayons, fuzzy coloring posters (8” x 10” size), teen items and activities, infant rattles, winkle sensory, tactile toys (sound, light, texture), board books, new release/popular DVDs (no VHS), $5 and $10 gift cards (music, book stores, movies, restaurants, Target, Amazon) and Uno card games.

Those donating are asked to not wrap items or include action figures with violent themes, such as guns, knives or swords. Please make sure they are new items, as Seattle Children’s can’t accept used toys or toiletries due to infection control and allergies. This includes stuffed animals that haven’t been played with, unless they have been stored in airtight containers.
