MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The University of Memphis Athletics Department and the M Club are tipping off their inaugural "Toys From Tigers" at the Memphis-Austin Peay men's basketball game Saturday at 12 p.m. (CT) at FedExForum.

Fans are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to Saturday's contest. The M Club and Athletics Department staff will collect the toys at FedExForum's main entrance.

Those not attending Saturday's game but who want to contribute can still do so by dropping off toys at the M Club office, which is located in the Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway Athletics Hall of Fame on 570 Normal Street. Donations will be accepted through Dec. 14.

The toys will be distributed Dec. 22 by former Tigers student-athletes at the Hickory Hill Community Center to all children of need that regularly visit all 24 community centers in the city of Memphis.

Any questions on the "Toys From Tigers" collection can be directed to M Club Director Dwight Boyd at 678-4878 or
