The Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury, in partnership with Grand Canyon University, will host a "Drive to Joplin" campaign June 1, aimed at aiding the victims of recent tornadoes that devastated the town of Joplin, Mo.

Donations will be accepted inside the Casino Arizona Pavilion at US Airways Center between 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Fans are encouraged to donate toiletry items including toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, deodorant, detergent, etc.

Additionally, Phoenix Mercury fans can make donations during the team's annual open practice May 31 from 6 - 8 p.m. at US Airways Center.

Any fan who makes a donation will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win autographed Suns merchandise, a pair of courtside seats to a 2011 Phoenix Mercury home game, and a meet-and-greet with Diana Taurasi.

All items collected from the campaign will be personally driven from Phoenix to Joplin June 2 and given to the American Red Cross, who will then distribute the donations to thousands of tornado victims desperately awaiting our help.
