Saturday Night, Support Toys For Tots in Sheila's Honor

The annual Sheila Leahy Toys for Tots drive will take place this Saturday, Nov. 19 during the home hockey series versus Minnesota Duluth.The Blue Line Club and the U.S. Marines will join forces to make Christmas special for area boys and girls.

"This is the 20th season of UNO Hockey, and our fans have helped out with donated unwrapped toys and dollars every year," says Rich Buckingham of the UNO Blue Line Club.

The annual Toys for Tots collection has occurred before a Maverick hockey game every year since 1997. In 2015, the collection was named for Sheila Leahy, the late wife of Maverick Hockey broadcaster Terry Leahy. Sheila died in May 2015. She had been the driving force behind the annual toy-and-cash collection since its inception.

Please bring your new, unwrapped toys -- and/or open your wallet and give a cash donation -- to help support the U.S. Marines' collection to benefit Omaha-area families. Collection points will be found at all three Baxter Arena entrances.
