Holiday Toy Drive Hopes to Help 4,000 NYC Kids in Need
Child Center of NY is about to kick off their annual toy drive in hopes of helping 4,000 children in need for the holidays.
“The gifts are going to families that have received services from us. Whether it is through our behavioral health clinics, whether it’s in our after school programs or in our early childhood programs,” Linda Rodriguez of the Child Center of NY told Spectrum News.
The organizers acknowledged that there are a lot of toy drives happening, but they want to assure everyone that all donations will go towards purchasing gifts for local families in need. They also are well aware of what children are looking for when it comes to gifts.
“We know the families well and many times we know what the likes and dislikes of the children are…to make sure that the toys go to some of the neediest families that we have and are receiving services,” Rodriguez said.
