GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Tailgaters at Sunday’s Arizona Cardinals game gave back in a big way, as they turned their ugly sweater party into a toy drive getting people to donate unwrapped gifts.

"About three games ago, we decided to get together for an ugly sweater tailgate and that turned into a toy drive,” said Chris Clifton, who helped organize the event. “We got together with the Arizonans for Children. They're going to be here shortly to pick up the gifts. We got a signed football on behalf of the Cardinals and it's going to be a great time."

The tailgaters collected around 200 gifts which will go to foster children for Christmas through Arizonans for Children, Inc.
