FORT LORAMIE — Fort Loramie head boys basketball coach Corey Britton announced recently that the second annual Holiday Helpers game will be on Dec. 11, when the Redskins host the Russia Raiders in County play.
On that night, Britton is asking everyone from both schools who are planning to attend the game to bring along a new toy for Christmas. The toys can be for children ages infant to 18 years old.
When all the toys are collected, Fort Loramie’s six senior basketball players will hand-deliver them to the children at Dayton Children’s Hospital.
“It’s truly a heartwarming experience, and it brings two communities together for more than just basketball,” said Britton. “It’s about helping others during the holiday season.”
Last year, the game was between Fort Loramie and Anna, and between the two communities, over 400 toys were collected and delivered to Dayton Children’s.
Anyone bringing a toy to the game will receive a free bag of popcorn, compliments of the Fort Loramie Athletic Department.
If you are unable to attend the game and would still like to donate, you can drop off a toy at the high school or elementary school offices.
