Above, Kurt Black of the Chilliwack Chiefs helps gather some of the 724 stuffed animals and 238 toques that were donated to the Chilliwack Community Services’ Christmas Sharing program during a home game at Prospera Centre Friday night.
Also donated were 50 pairs of mittens and gloves, 14 pairs of socks, eight scarves, one winter coat and one case of diapers.
The items were tossed onto the ice by fans when the Chiefs scored their first goal of the game against the Coquitlam Express during the Chiefs annual Teddy Bear and Toque Toss night.
The toys will go into some of the Christmas family hampers organized by the Salvation Army and Chilliwack Community Services.
