Town & Village is holding a toy drive to help make the holidays brighter for children undergoing medical treatment during the holiday season as well as the children of families in outpatient programs run by Mount Sinai Beth Israel.

Gifts will be accepted for children of all ages as long as they are new. Items for older boys are especially in high demand. No toy weapons, please.

Partnering with Town & Village on this effort is:

Stuyvesant Town Property Services, accepting toys at Resident Services, 276 First Avenue on the First Avenue Loop Road, and at AppleSeeds, 6 Stuyvesant Oval off of the Avenue C loop

Waterside Plaza management, accepting toys at the management office, 30 Waterside Plaza, and the Swim & Health Club, 35 Waterside Plaza

M&T Bank, accepting toys at the branch at 397 First Avenue and East 23rd Street.

Toys can also be dropped off at Town & Village’s office, 20 West 22nd Street, Suite 1503 (or left with the doorperson at the lobby).

The deadline to donate is Monday, December 16. Toys should be unwrapped. Gifts will still be accepted after the deadline at Town & Village’s office but won’t be delivered until after New Year’s.
