UC Davis Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department will be collecting art supplies and toy donations at the June 7 Sacramento Republic FC game at Hughes Stadium.
Donations requested include infant rattles, lip balm, hair ties, Crayola crayons, Crayola watercolors, Crayola colored pencils, coloring books, play dough, Hot Wheels, sippy cups, fuzzy socks and glue sticks. All items should be new and unwrapped. Donation drop-off sites will be at each entrance into Hughes Stadium.
"Our department operates solely through generous donations from our community and we are grateful that Sacramento's premier soccer team Sac Republic FC and its supporters will be helping to bring in some much-needed supplies for the children staying in our hospital," said Diana Sundberg, manager of the UC Davis Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department.
"Sac Republic FC is committed to cultivating an indomitable city," said Vice President of Marketing and Communications Erika Bjork. "We couldn't imagine a more perfect opportunity to engage our fans and join them in donating art items at Saturday's match - Families & Football Night - to benefit families of the UC Davis Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department."
