Donated Items Accepted Through December 18th for Children in Need
QUEENS, NY – Borough President Melinda Katz announced today the start of her annual Holiday Toy Drive at Queens Borough Hall for children in need. From now through Wednesday, December 18th, Queens residents are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages.
Donations dropped off at Queens Borough Hall are anonymous and are not tax-deductible. At the conclusion of the Holiday Toy Drive, the donated items will be distributed by the Battalion Pentecostal Assembly Church in Far Rockaway and St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children in Bayside to children in need across Queens.
“The holiday season is a time to rejoice with our families and give thanks for the blessings in our lives,” said Borough President KATZ. “In the spirit of giving, please consider donating to make sure children across the borough will share in the joy the holidays bring.”
Anyone interested in donating can do so by placing their item into the Holiday Toy Drive box in the lobby of Queens Borough Hall, located at 120-55 Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens.
Queens Borough Hall can be easily reached by mass transit by taking the E or F subway lines to the Kew Gardens-Union Turnpike station.
