“Charter One is proud to partner with the Lake Erie Monsters and Cleveland Cavaliers to make the holidays brighter for hundreds of children in need in our community,” said Ken Marblestone, president of Charter One.“While many parents face challenges in today’s economy, we hope the Toy Drive will help families experience the magic of the holiday season.”

At the conclusion of the Toy Drive, Charter One employees will join with the Monsters and Cavaliers game entertainment teams to host holiday parties where donated toys will be presented to designated agencies. All toys will be distributed to the children through agencies such as the Salvation Army, ACCESS, Project ACT, JR Coleman Center, Merrick House, Boys and Girls Club of Lorain, West Side Ecumenical Ministry and the Phillis Wheatley Association.
 
“The heart of the Northeast Ohio community is ‘XL’ and that is what makes our annual Toy Drive bigger, better and more successful each year,” said Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert. “The Monsters and Cavaliers, along with our partner Charter One, are proud to coordinate this collection and distribution on behalf of our fans. We thank everyone in advance for their generosity to make the holidays special for these children and their families.”
