The Verizon Center is honoring the late DC sports owner and local philanthropist, Abe Pollin, on Tuesday with a memorial service and toy drive.

If you’re feeling charitable this holiday season and would like to commemorate the life of a man who served this community, feel free to drop off new/unwrapped toys at the Verizon Center’s entrance on F Street from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m tomorrow.

Pollin’s memorial service begins at 7 p.m. and is free to the general public. Speakers include Mayor Fenty and NBA Hall of Famers Wes Unseld and Earl Monroe.
