Donations will be accepted from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Verizon FanFest, which will be located outside of the O’Connell Center, off of Gale Lemerand Drive. Suggested items to donate include toiletries, snacks and miscellaneous items such as playing cards and crossword puzzle books. Perishable or home backed food items are unable to be accepted.
