[November 26, 2013]  Lincoln College's Phi Theta Kappa honor society students are spreading Christmas cheer by collecting toys for the Logan County Toys for Tots program. New, unwrapped toys will be collected on Dec. 7 at the LC women's basketball game that afternoon and at the winter concert that evening. For each toy donated at each event, the donor's name will be entered into a drawing for a Visa gift card.

At the 2 p.m. game between the Lady Lynx and the Carl Sandburg Chargers, Phi Theta Kappa members will be at the Lincoln Center to collect donated toys. Everyone who brings a toy to the basketball game will receive free admission to the game and will be entered in the gift card drawing.

The winter concert, featuring LC's Chamber Choir and Chorale, begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Johnston Center for the Performing Arts. Toy donors attending the concert will be entered in a drawing for one of two Visa gift cards. The drawing will be in the Johnston Center lobby immediately following the concert. The concert is open to the public, and general admission is $2.

Brittany Meador of Lincoln, president of the Phi Theta Kappa chapter, says the group is excited to partner with others on campus to give back to the larger community.

"We are thrilled to offer basketball fans and concert attendees the opportunity to donate toys to the children of Logan County in addition to enjoying some exciting basketball and/or wonderful holiday music," Meador said.

Besides the toys collected at the basketball game and the concert, the Phi Theta Kappa chapter itself is donating 100 toys to Logan County Toys for Tots.
