Dec. 18, 2001 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The Marine Corps Reserve unit, Military Police Company A, has once again teamed up with the University of Kentucky Athletics Association for the 54th annual Toys for Tots Campaign.

The campaign will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 19, when the Kentucky women’s basketball team hosts intrastate rival Louisville at 7 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum.

To assist this year’s campaign, bring one new unwrapped toy and gain free admission for two. All toys collected will help less fortunate children throughout the Commonwealth.

The game also marks UK Employee Appreciation Night. All UK employees with a valid identification card will be admitted free.

All other adults are $5. Admission for children, ages 18 and under, and senior citizens, 62 and over, will be $2.

The Marine Corps Reserve began the now nationwide campaign in 1947, collecting some 5,000 toys for needy children in Los Angeles.
