Pearland Police will take on the Pasadena Police Department in the 24th annual Toys for Tots Basketball Game, set for 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at Turner High.
Admission to the annual Battle of the Badges game is one new, unwrapped toy per person. Run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, Toys for Tots is a program that distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for the holidays. Gifts are distributed within the communities in which they are collected.
Parking for the basketball game will be onsite at the campus, 4717 Bailey Road.
For information, call 281-997-4176.
For those who can’t attend the game, there are more than 70 toy drop-off locations in Pearland alone, including the Elks Lodge, Sports Clips locations, Pearland Bowl, UH Clear Lake-Pearland, Whispering Winds Apartments, Strawbridge Apartments, Stepping Stones Learning Center I and II, Silverlake Animal Hospital, Servpro, SBB Scooters Ice House, Robin’s Nest I and II, St. Luke Community Center, Pearland Orthodontics and many others.
