It's the 14th year for the News10NBC Pirate Toy Fund Drive. We started collecting toys Monday and won't stop until Saturday.

News10NBC is encouraging our viewers to donate a new, unwrapped toy to any of our area malls or to any Wegmans store in the Rochester area. Our goal is 14,000 toys by the end of the week.

Look for News10NBC's Rebecca Leclair live on location with Gary the Happy Pirate all week collecting toys. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday she will be at Eastview Mall, then Thursday and Friday she'll be at Marketplace Mall. The finale will be Saturday at the Mall at Greece Ridge.

In addition to the mall drop-off locations, the Amerks will be collecting toys for the Pirate Toy Fund Drive at its home game on December 4 versus the Utica Comets. Any fan that donates will be eligible to purchase buy one, get one free tickets to any Wednesday home game this season. The team will also be collecting toys at its December 20 game.
