Oyster Bay Town Councilman Anthony D. Macagnone joined with Town Councilman Chris J. Coschignano to announce the annual kick-off of this year’s “Toys for Tots” collection drive, which will run through December 15th, in an effort to collect new, unwrapped toys to be used as gifts for children in the community.
“Run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, the program’s mission is to help ensure that children in need in our area do not have to go without during this holiday season,” Councilman Coschignano said.
“By helping those in need experience the joy of the holiday season, contributors will play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources for the future, our children. Without collection drives like this one organized by the Town, many of the less fortunate in the Town of Oyster Bay would be forced to go without,” Councilman Macagnone said.
For those who wish to donate to “Toys for Tots”, clearly labeled boxes for the “Toys for Tots” drives can be found in the following Town facilities: Town Hall North, 54 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay; Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa; Town Department of Public Works, 150 Miller Place, Syosset; The Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center, 1001 Stewart Avenue, Bethpage; Marjorie R.
