The Escanaba High School hockey team, the Eskymo Blue Line Club and the Spanish Club recently teamed up for a United States Marines Toys for Tots Drive. The drive began with a drop-off event at a home hockey game at the Hannahville Ice and Turf Complex. After the national anthem prior to the game, each Eskymo hockey player donated a toy, skating down the ice to the donation box and thanking the veterans for their service with a handshake. Students, staff and the public were also encouraged to drop off toys at the Spanish classroom, the high school and junior high offices.
