Murray State fans have a great chance to brighten a child’s Christmas in 2022 by participating in the Max’s 641 Toy Toss that benefits the larger annual Max’s 641 Towing for Toys initiative.
The big night is Dec. 16 when the Racers men’s basketball team renews the Battle of the Border game with rival Austin Peay at the CFSB Center in Murray, Kentucky. Tip off time is 7 p.m.
All fans attending the game are encouraged to bring new teddy bears or stuffed animals to toss on the floor at halftime. All teddy bears and stuffed animals will be donated to local children in need via Max’s 641 Towing for Toys. All toys being tossed should be plush and soft in nature with other toy donations being welcome at the donation bins at the Upper-B and Lower-A entrances at the CFSB Center.
There are children in Murray and Calloway County that won’t have the opportunity to enjoy Christmas, which makes this effort very important. The Towing for Toys effort has been a huge success to the community and in 2021, more than 1,400 children in Murray and Calloway County received a gift.
“Towing for Toys Inc. is blessed to have partnerships with Murray State University and Racer Athletics, which have been with us since our inception in 2013,” said Monty McCuiston, Max’s 641 Towing owner. “Without partnerships such as this, along with community support and heartfelt generosity, we would not be able to accomplish the task at hand. We are extremely excited to further our partnership with Racer Athletics by sponsoring the Teddy Bear Toss event. It allows us to provide children in our community with a Christmas they deserve.”
“The Towing for Toys program has become essential to providing holiday assistance to the families in our community,” said Calloway County Family Resource Center Coordinator, Michelle Hansen. “We are extremely grateful for this partnership that is making a difference for the children. Monty and his team make the collaboration easy and effective and allow the Family Resource Youth Service Centers to focus on serving the kids in our schools and community.”
