To All,

As you may know we are currently running the biggest toy drive in our 11 year history and this year the toys will go to the victims of Sandy.

We are reaching out to schools and businesses both locally and nationwide with our appeal.

We estimate that we will have thousands of toys available.

If you would like to get involved please click the link below.

In order to make these toys available to all the victims we will be opening up a toy store.

Thanks to the generosity of the Amalgamated Transit Union 726 who are loaning us the location it will be located at 3948 Amboy Road (the old Venizia's Pork Store) in Great Kills.

We are finalizing the details and plan to have the store stocked and ready to open 12/8.

We will need volunteers to staff the store. Please spread the word....

The toys will be available to any family impacted by Sandy (they will need to provide a FEMA # and proof of address in an impacted area)

We will also arrange delivery to families that canít make it to the store.

The store will be staffed by volunteers FROM 12/8-12/24.

We will be partnering with Senator Lanza in this effort and hope to get other elected officials and organizations involved.

Please let me know if you would like to be involved.

In the meantime toys can be dropped off at the

UPS Store (Pathmark Shopping Center)
150-L Greaves Lane # 312
Staten Island NY 10308

Just tell them they are for Where to Turn

We will also arrange delivery to families that canít make it to the store.

We will be partnering with Senator Lanza in this effort and hope to get other elected officials and organizations involved.

Please let me know if you would like to be involved.

Thank you in advance for your help.
