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.
