The Red Sox are focused on spreading holiday cheer leading into the club's 14th Annual Christmas at Fenway event, presented by Bedgear Performance Bedding, on Saturday, December 10, with gift donations to kids, visits from players at Boston-area hospitals, and the collection of warm winter gear at Fenway Park for children in need, in partnership with the Globe Santa Program. 
 
This week, David Price and his foundation, Project 14, have arranged for the donation of 8,000 toys from Jazwares - a well-respected leader in the licensed toy and consumer electronics industry based in Sunrise, Florida - to children in the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF). The toys will be distributed to DCF locations in Holyoke, North Central, New Bedford, and Pittsfield. 
 
On Wednesday evening, December 7, at 6:30 p.m., 48 children and 15 coaches from the Red Sox Foundation's RBI Program (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) will receive holiday gifts at Fenway Park courtesy of Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval. The kids and coaches will each be given a new pair of New Balance sneakers, a backpack, and a $100 gift card for holiday groceries for their families. Gifts are funded by Pablo Sandoval and the Pablo Sandoval Foundation. This is the second year that Sandoval and his foundation have made a holiday gift to participants of the RBI Program.
 
Later in the week, Red Sox pitchers Heath Hembree, Robby Scott, and infielder Deven Marrero will visit with patients at Boston-area hospitals and children at a baseball and academic training academy as part of the 2016 Holiday Caravan. The Caravan begins on Thursday, December 8, with visits to MassGeneral Hospital for Children and Shriners Hospital for Children. The tour continues Friday, December 9, with stops at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Jimmy Fund Clinic, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Boston Children's Hospital. The Caravan concludes Friday evening in Roxbury with a visit to The BASE, a baseball and academic training academy.
 
For the second straight year, the Red Sox Foundation has partnered with Globe Santa to collect warm winter clothing for children in need. The foundation is collecting new hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens for children 12 and under at Fenway Park through December 16 in a Globe Santa collection bin outside the ballpark's Gate D entrance. Items can also be mailed to the attention of the Red Sox Foundation's Globe Santa Collection at 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA, 02215. 
 
The holiday activity leads up to Christmas at Fenway, which is the first chance to purchase Red Sox tickets for the 2017 regular season. Tickets are available on Saturday starting at 10 a.m. online at redsox.com, by phone at 877-REDSOX9, and at the 14th Annual Christmas at Fenway event.
