The Morton girls basketball team has chosen to participate in the Dream Center Peoria's "Smile. Eat. Receive" event Dec. 15.
The team will be at the Dream Center from 8 a.m. to noon that day.
The Potters are asking the community to participate by donating and delivering much-needed toiletries, household goods, clothing and child-appropriate Christmas gifts in addition to what the team, coaches and parents donate.
The collection time is from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Bertha Frank Performing Arts Center.
The team website, www.mortonladypotters.com, has a list of items needed.
"Smile. Eat. Receive" is a program that provides a holiday meal, family portrait and Christmas gifts to less-fortunate families.
At the event this year, the Morton girls will do hair and make-up for families having their portrait taken, help distribute items, frame portraits and a host of other things needed that day.
