WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The Baylor women’s basketball team will hold its 11th annual “Care Bear” drive on Thursday, Dec. 1, when it hosts Abilene Christian at 7 p.m. (CT).

Whataburger returns as the event sponsor for the second year and will provide $5 admission to the game and a coupon for a free Whataburger (while supplies last) to each fan who donates a new bear.

All donated bears will be delivered to children and patients at Waco’s Baylor Scott & White Hospital by Lady Bears student-athletes and staff.

“Our team and fans look forward to participating in this event each year and I’m appreciative to Whataburger our event sponsor for its continued involvement,” head women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey said. “Our players and staff enjoy visiting with patients and sharing the holiday spirit with these bears.”

"Whataburger is happy to partner with Baylor athletics to sponsor their Care Bear drive, especially during the holiday season,” said Whataburger Area Manager Shawn Oliver. "We know being treated in a hospital can make us anxious and we can’t imagine what a child goes through. We’re more than happy to do what we can to help children in our community have a more positive experience."
