With the holiday season around the corner, Town & Village is asking readers to help spread cheer by participating in our annual holiday toy drive.

The drive delivers gifts to Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center, where they will then be distributed to children of patients of the hospital’s outpatient clinic programs as well as to children stuck spending their holidays in hospital rooms.

Gifts for children of all ages are welcome and should be new and unwrapped. Deadline is December 11 at noon, when the toys will be picked up.

Partnering with T&V on this endeavor is:

CompassRock, offering the use of Stuyvesant Town’s leasing office as a donation dropoff point, 252 First Avenue,

Waterside Plaza, where donation boxes will be at the management office, 30 Waterside Plaza; the Health Club, 35 Waterside Plaza; and the Community Center, 40 Waterside Plaza,

M&T Bank at the corner of East 23rd Street and First Avenue.

Donations may also be left at the Town & Village office, 20 West 22nd Street, Suite #1503.

Bonnie Robbins, PhD, coordinator of children and family services at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, said gifts from previous drives have made a world of a difference to the children the hospital serves.
