LARAMIE, Wyo. -

In order to ensure that all the children in Albany County will receive toys for Christmas this year, the Fleet Reserve Association Wyoming Branch and Unit 59, the Marine Corps League Detachment #777, UW's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), SAE Fraternity, and the football coaches' wives are sponsoring a "Toys for Tots" drive this Saturday.

New, unwrapped toys, as well as monetary contributions, will be collected prior to the Wyoming vs. BYU football game, on November 17, 2007. The game starts at noon and will take place at War Memorial Stadium.

All the toys collected at the Wyoming vs. BYU game will remain in Albany County to assist families in need.
