Manhattan Bagel of Brick will provide free bagels and the BlueClaws will provide coffee for patrons who drop off items.
Buster and his holiday friend, Santa Claus, will be at FirstEnergy Park to greet fans as they drop off food and toys and enjoy their free coffee and bagels.
"Over the last 11 years, the community support for this event has been overwhelming," said BlueClaws General Manager Geoff Brown. "This year, before you start your Saturday you can grab a bagel and a cup of coffee, and help those less fortunate this holiday season."
All collected items go to the Salvation Army of Ocean County, and the BlueClaws ask that all toys be unwrapped, and all food be non-perishable.
The BlueClaws are the Jersey Shore's top stop for affordable family entertainment and have led the South Atlantic League in attendance in each of their first 11 seasons of play.
Opening Day in 2012 is on Thursday, April 12th against Hagerstown. All 2012 ticket packages and group outings are on sale now by calling 732-901-7000 option 3.
