Georgia Tech Completes Sixth Annual Toy Drive

Members of the Georgia Tech athletics teams recently completed the sixth annual Michael Isenhour Toy Drive, and it was a big success.

After gathering toys at a women's basketball game, the athletes had collected over $6,000 and 1,500 toys. This is an effort they have been working on since October.

Former Yellow Jacket basketball player Michael Isenhour had the original idea for the toy drive back in 2001 to help out families of 9/11 victims. Isenhour lost his battle with leukemia in 2002 and passed away, and the toy drive was renamed in his honor. Since the initial effort in 2001, Tech athletes have collected more than 10,000 toys that have gone to kids in the Atlanta area.
