The Kingston Frontenacs are busy in the community this month, striving to meet the needs of their city and fans. The Fronts have partnered with University Hospitals Kingston Foundation to create a Toy Drive in support of Pediatrics and the Child Life Program with Kingston Health Sciences Centre.
Every season, the Kingston Frontenacs have hosted an annual Teddy Bear Toss game. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, our team was unable to host this game and collect hundreds of plush toys that would have been donated to children within the surrounding area.
Fans are asked to bring new and unwrapped toys to donation bins located at The Fronts Shop (Leon’s Centre, 1 The Tragically Hip Way, Kingston, Ontario). Donations can be made on Fridays (11:00am-5:00pm) and Saturdays (11:00am-4:00pm). Items must be new and in a package that can be wiped off. NO open packages will be accepted.
Anyone that donates will receive 15% off at The Fronts Shop (in store).
Additionally, the Frontenacs have partnered with the United Way KFLA and the Leon’s Centre to create a Community Donation Drive. Donations will be accepted at the Leon’s Centre (Gate 4) from December 7-11 and December 14-18 between 11:00am and 2:00pm.
Acceptable donations include non-perishable food; clothing items, new hats, mittens and socks; new and gently used winter boots; coats and hygiene products.
All collected items will be sorted and distributed through agencies in Kingston and surrounding regions.
“@unitedwaykfla is grateful for this partnership with @LeonsCentre & @KingstonFronts & their generosity in making sure there is a place to drop off. This will help our most vulnerable community members continue to receive support they need.”-@Bhavanavarma https://t.co/V2jaK1ot2v
