What Doing The Most Good® Looks Like – This Holiday Season, Salvation Army Kicks Off Toy Giveaway Program At Marcy Houses

Note From The Charity: Thousands of NY children are facing a Christmas without a single toy, but it’s not too late to make a donation. The Salvation Army Greater New York Division is hosting dozens of events throughout Greater New York, including Westchester, Dutchess, Orange and Rockland Counties, to raise awareness of this holiday emergency affecting our youngest, as Covid, unemployment, and other factors make it hard for families and individuals to make ends meet. Event details may evolve, so please check back to the post, as it will be updated if changes occur.  

The first of these events this year took place at the Marcy Houses on Saturday afternoon, from 1-5pm.  Children from the houses were invited to the event, where there were gifts and toys with tags on them written for each child.  Most of the children received more than one gift, including one lucky girl who posed with her wrapped present, before being surprised with a brand new bicycle!-HM, Staff Writer
