GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES TOY GIVING DRIVE TO BENEFIT FAMILIES IN COMMUNITIES AFFECTED BY HURRICANE SANDY

Drop-off Locations Across State for New Yorkers to Donate Toys and Help Bring Holiday Cheer to Children in Sandy-Affected Areas

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced an on-going statewide holiday giving drive to benefit families hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.

The Office of General Services (OGS) has set up drop-off locations across the state for businesses and individuals to bring the toys which will be distributed to children in communities affected by the storm. The Governor will visit affected areas to deliver toys and other donated supplies.

"In times of hardship, New Yorkers have always come together to support their neighbors and lend a hand to those in need," Governor Cuomo said. "By donating a toy, all New Yorkers have a chance to bring some much-needed holiday cheer to a child in a community that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy."

Several toy producers and companies have agreed to join the Toy Drive. Toys R Us is providing $5,000 worth of gift cards to purchase toys, and Carnegie Hall has agreed to donate 200 musical toys. The Toy Drive began last week.
