Dave Denenberg's Extend The Holidays Toy/Book Drive

Legislator Dave Denenberg and his son, Aron, are running an "extend the holidays" toy and book drive.  Like other holiday drives, this effort collects books and toys for donations. However, this drive extends the season for giving beyond the holiday season and is intended to provide toys and books for hospitalized children and/or children in need after the holiday season.  Obviously, hospitalized children and/or children in need are in particular need of cheer at any time of year.  In the days after the holiday season is over, it is exceptionally important to provide gifts to these children.                

Unwrapped toys, gifts and books may be dropped off at Leg. Denenberg’s district office, 2818 Merrick Road, Bellmore (just east of Bellmore Avenue), Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The deadline for the toy and book drive is February 15, 2013.  If you have any questions, please call Leg. Denenberg’s office at 409-6623 or 571-6219.
