Toys For Tots: PLEASE NOTE!

This meet is named the “Holiday Spirit Classic” with the intent of reminding all participants to think about the spirit of giving during the holiday season. In promoting this spirit, each swimmer is asked to bring one unwrapped, new toy, which will be collected at the meet in marked barrels and given to a less fortunate child via the Toys for Tots program. The Makos team asks that all coaches communicate this request to all swimmers and parents in their program with the goal of collecting hundreds of toys at this meet which will later be wrapped and distributed to the under privileged children in the area. Thanks, in advance, for your help in this worthwhile cause. Over the past several years, swimmers have made this effort very successful.
