WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's water polo team will host a toy drive to benefit Dr. Bear's Closet at Children's National Medical Center at the GW men's water polo Senior Day/Alumni Day match against Johns Hopkins on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Toys will be collected prior to and during the Colonials' game against the Blue Jays, which begins at 7 p.m. All toys must be new to meet the hospital's infection control requirements. Other donation guidelines can be found here, and a list of suggested donations can be found here.
