New toys will be collected and subsequently donated to Kosair Children's Hospital at the Cardinals' Dec. 19 men's basketball game against Western Kentucky.

New toys for any age or gender will be collected in the lobby of the KFC Yum! Center. The collection is associated with UofL Athletics' CardsCARE program and Kyle's Korner for Kids, the community outreach established in 2011 by former Cardinals forward Kyle Kuric while a UofL student. About 2,000 toys have been donated annually by Cardinal fans at similar collections in previous years. 

Kuric, who has been playing basketball for Herbalife Gran Canaria in Spain for the past two seasons, is currently recovering from brain surgery.  He helped the Cardinals reach the 2012 Final Four as a senior.

For those who wish to contribute a toy to the drive and cannot attend the Dec. 19 game, toys may be dropped at the UofL Athletics offices on the second floor of the Swain Student Activities Center located at 2100 South Floyd Street. Toys will be accepted weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. through Dec. 18.
