County Legislator Jim Maisano is pleased to announce that his annual Toys for Tots drive to collect toys for kids in need will take place on Saturday, December 18, 2010, from Noon to 3 PM at Dudley’s Restaurant, 94 Hudson Park Road, New Rochelle, NY.

Legislator Maisano stated, “I proudly support this fantastic charity as a member of the Marine Corps League. The Toys for Tots program of the Marine Corps Reserve has distributed hundreds of millions of toys to needy children for more than 60 years. Please help us make sure that kids receive presents again this year - all of the gifts we collect will be delivered directly to children in our area. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve has asked that we promote gifts for teenage children, which can include gift cards or monetary contributions. We ask that all gifts be new and unwrapped.”

If you cannot make it on December 18, please bring your unwrapped toy or gift to one of the drop box locations set up by Legislator Maisano:

-- Dudley’s, 94 Hudson Park Road, New Rochelle
-- goHEIDI Toys at Gingers, 153 Fifth Avenue, Pelham

Can There Be a Merry Christmas in Iraq and Afghanistan? YOU Can Help Make it Happen

ShareThis

Thanksgiving found many of us joining together with family and friends to celebrate and give thanks for what we have. In stark contrast to the comfort of our celebrating together, approximately 150,000 men and women currently serving in Afghanistan and Iraq will spend this Holiday season some 7,000 miles from home and separated from loved ones.

YOU can bring a little slice of home to those who serve just by helping out Jennie McFarland and the good folks over at "Operation Support Our Troops". With very little effort on your part, you can help make a connection with home and let the troops know we care. Keep in mind, we may call them the "troops", but they really are our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, aunts, uncles and friends. Don't let their distance come between home and heart.
