Phoenix Suns Charities and Swift Charities for Children will host a clothing drive on Sunday, February 13 when the Suns take on the Sacramento Kings at US Airways Center. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m., with doors scheduled to open at 5 p.m.

Fans are encouraged to donate gently worn clothing, paired shoes and linens at the Swift Charities for Children collection boxes that will be located at both the plaza and Bud Light Paseo entrances to US Airways Center. A minimum five dollar donation will also be accepted in lieu of a clothing donation.

Those who donate will be entered into a halftime raffle to win one of four autographed Suns items, including a Jared Dudley jersey, Channing Frye photo and hats signed by Grant Hill and Goran Dragic. Fans will receive one raffle ticket per bag of clothes donated, or five dollar donation.

All donations from the drive will benefit Phoenix Suns Charities, Swift Charities for Children, and Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix.

In addition, Swift Charities for Children will present Phoenix Suns Charities with a $50,000 donation during a future Suns home game. Currently in the final year of a five-year partnership, Swift Charities for Children has pledged $250,000 towards the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix and maintains 200 collection boxes located throughout the Valley.
