BATH — Almost 100 young players enjoyed a night of soccer and supported a charity at the annual Toys for Tots benefit hosted by the Revere High School boys soccer team Dec. 9.

Members of the state championship Revere varsity soccer team, junior varsity soccer team and their coaches led three free one-hour clinics in the Hillcrest Elementary School gym.

Each of the participants — kindergarten through eighth-grade students — donated a new unwrapped toy and, in return, received soccer instruction, according to event officials.

The soccer team collected six bins of toys to assist the Summit County Toys for Tots program through community member Karen Hernandez, according to event officials. Those, along with 60 new soccer balls provided by NC Soccer Club, of Hudson, and the Revere Soccer Club, were donated to the Toys for Tots program, which provides Christmas toys to Summit County children in need.

Shown above are students and coaches with the donations.
