Payton Toy Drive being held Sunday


The Bears will hold the 12th annual Walter and Connie Payton Foundation Toy Drive Sunday when they host the San Francisco 49ers at Soldier Field.

Fans attending the game are encouraged to donate a new, unwrapped toy at one of four locations at the stadium between 9 a.m. and noon. Drop-off boxes will be located outside Gates 45 and 47 near McFetridge Drive, at the pedestrian walkway off McFetridge Drive by the Children's Garden, under the Waldron Drive tunnel just south of Gate 0 and inside the North Garage near the Gate 38 United Club entrance.

Toys collected will be donated to the Department of Children and Family Services.

"We are so thankful for the opportunity to help collect toys for kids in need during the holiday season at Soldier Field for the 12th consecutive year," said Connie Payton. "Every year, we are amazed by the generosity of our Bears fans and are excited to continue that tradition this Sunday. I'll be stationed at the Waldron Drive tunnel drop-off box and look forward to meeting fans dropping off toys there."
