LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A University of Louisville basketball great is continuing his tradition of giving back.

Kyle Kuric's eighth annual toy drive is set for Dec. 12 when the Cardinals take on Lipscomb. Fans are encouraged to bring new toys with them to the KFC Yum! Center that night.

All of the toys will go to Norton Children's Hospital and the Home of the Innocents. And this year, for every item collected, Kuric will donate $1 toward Blessings in a Backpack.

The U of L athletics program and Kyle's Korner for Kids run the collection every year.

Toys will also be accepted at the school's athletics office.
