“It is very exciting because then we get the opportunity to know something about a player,” said 12-year-old Izabel Cordova.

“Our children are our tomorrow. So what we can give to them today will make it better for us tomorrow,” said Brian Nicholson, the President of the RMHDA.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver provide a safe place for kids from kindergarten to 12th grade to go after school. The club offer opportunities in sports, education, computers, robotics and many other areas. The Together 4 Colorado Toy Drive is designed to make sure every club member gets a new toy at Christmas time. CBS4 relies on many community partners to achieve that goal.

“It makes me feel grateful. It makes me feel grateful that we can do this. It makes me feel grateful that we can give back to the community that we’re a part of,” Nicholson said to CBS4.

“I think it’s really good because kids are going to be happy,” Cordova added.
