Spread holiday cheer this season with ACO’s North Pole Toy Drive!

Through Dec. 3, All Community Outreach (ACO) is collecting new, unwrapped toys and gifts for Collin County children ages 0-16. When the collection period ends, ACO will distribute the gifts to Collin County families.

  • Sunday, Dec. 5 - Donations collected from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. before the Allen Americans game at 2:05 p.m. Donate a toy and receive $20 tickets to that afternoon's game along with a post-game, on-ice photo opportunity.
