Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Laura Maier recently delivered five pallets filled with toys to Cohen Children’s Medical Center, collected by the Town in cooperation with the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and Councilwoman Maier’s fundraising efforts.
“I cannot say enough about the caring people who work Cohen Children’s Medical Center and I thank all those who opened their hearts and wallets to help children and families going through a difficult time,” said Councilwoman Maier. “This cause means so much to me personally, and in addition to the toys we’ve collected through Town efforts, I’m proud to say many are being donated by Mighty Mason’s Warriors. This is a group organized to help fundraise and collect donations in my son’s name – all to help in supporting the fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma.”
Continuing efforts to help make the upcoming holiday season a brighter for those less fortunate, the Town of Oyster Bay has once again teamed up with Toys for Tots to host a collection drive. Donation boxes have been set up at Town facilities, and the Town will also host the largest ‘Cruise-Thru’ collection drive on Saturday, December 3rd at John Burns Park in Massapequa.
