Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, and Town Board members recognized the incredible work of retired United States Marine Major Chuck Kilbride by celebrating the Town’s recent success of the Toys for Tots program. Toys for Tots Collection Drive, held annually in conjunction with the United States Marine Corps., benefits needy families and less fortunate children throughout the community, delivering new, unwrapped toys during the holiday season. The Toys for Tots Drive has been a huge success year in and year out here in the Town of Oyster Bay.
This year’s Drive was especially crucial, as so many families experienced a financial burden, as a result of the pandemic. Through the Town’s ‘Cruise-Thru’ Drive which was held at John Burns Park in Massapequa and collection sites set up throughout Town facilities, the Town of Oyster Bay collected a record number of 31,000 toys this year!
